"Ivory Spoon"

Sand patterns make fire "visible". Fire creates nuanced spatial depth and tonal gradations on the clay surface.

This is an ethereal imprint of a spoon in the sand. I model the sand interface as a pattern of carbon (smoke) resist. The dune-like sand evokes natural wonders such as the Great Sand Dunes of Colorado.

The sand dune or "prepared sand" is similar in concept to John Cage's "prepared piano". I do not know in advance how the various realities of light and tone will align themselves. They simply interact.

A "spoon" is a dream. It is a meditation on space and light.

A "Spoon" is a rendezvous where glaze, gradations and shadows meet.

"No Mind Boundaries"- The broken patterns of the glazed wood grain are echoed by the splashes of carbon in the bare clay margin. The mat black background abuts a gloss black field.

Gradational shadows bound toward a dual void.

My work deals with the perception of light within the confines of the picture plane.
