Gallery Talk Feb 21, 3:30pm
"I create objects of comfort; escapist objects to provide focus or retreat in an overwhelming world. Through the use of meticulous detail and ambiguous function I coax my audience to investigate closer, closing the physical gap between viewer and object. In this way I want the details of my workmanship to act as a whisper, flirtatiously seductive in its discretion.
The forms that I choose are drawn from historical ceramic sources. I have come full circle back to the objects that originally inspired me as a young potter. Through the lens of lived experience, digital processes and industrial materials I playfully dissect and re-invent these recognizable historic objects.
Most recently I have been expanding and challenging the notion of what is clay. Taking cues from industry I have begun adapting and inventing new ways for working with this most ancient material. From tape casting to foaming to gelling my time in the laboratory is truly experimental, each new discovery brings a wave of possibilities and excitement." - Janice
