    • ART INFO

      I typically have a number of ideas or themes in mind that I wish to influence and shape the work. These themes become a kind of "terrain" or context from which I can formally develop a complete art piece. With "Mountain Beauty," the main themes include celestial phenomena, abstracted mountains, elemental forces and sacred geometry. There is a strong connection to the tradition in ancient civilizations of incorporating relief sculpture in architecture and stele as a means of pre-literate communication.Nine individually hung panels are created using an "earth-forming" technique, a one-off casting method developed by the artist. A dis-solvable "form work" is carved from silt and filled with liquid clay. Over a period of weeks, the silt & clay matrix dries and disintegrates, allowing the hardened clay within to be excavated. Glazed and fired with colored terra sigillata.Due to the nature of this process, slight variations occur between each composition. Panels are ready to hang; a full-sized paper pattern is included for easy and accurate installation. Suitable for indoor or outdoor display.Nine individually hung panels are created using an "earth-forming" technique, a one-off casting method developed by the artist.
