Process

1001 Farewells (detail)

 

My sculptures and installations involve the repetition of individual ceramic components. Some works are quite large and are composed of hundreds of small, handbuilt porcelain elements, while others hang on the wall and are more contained. All porcelain pieces are fired in a reduction atmosphere to 2345 degrees Fahrenheit. When appropriate, I complete the firing cycle by applying gold luster to accentuate various aspects of the work.
