Rings and Arrows

These series of ceramic sculptures are low fired and then hand painted. Hung on the wall with monofilament, the pieces seem to float in the air. Each group is composed of many variations upon a common theme. The “rings” depict circular forms made of rope with human fingertips at either end, whereas the “arrows” are straight rope lines of various lengths with accusatory fingers at either end. Extremely fragile, these pieces try to test the limits of what thin, fired clay can withstand, before it breaks apart into pottery shards that fall to the ground beneath each collection of works.
