on the surface
I just picked up my show at Quicksilver Mining in Forestville, when I put these ladies next to each other, I was struck with the degree to which I have experimented with surfaces over this past 6 months. I have used stains, oxides, underglazes, wax and even oil paint. I had the argument with myself about "pure ceramic art" and then I threw that concept out the window. For me it is all about the form and I will shamelessly use anything that gives me an exciting surface.
