Artwork Statement

These works are part of a larger group whose shapes are all derived from sections of tree trunks. Currently my way of working involves using slipcasting and moldmaking techniques as a means to explore different ways of expanding single forms into a community of objects. The resulting groups are then intermingled in various cominations, the intention being to establish a variety of relationships between the objects. All the stark white forms in this series could be suggestive of lifeless tree trunks, but the play of light on the polished translucent porcelain can also have the effect of bringing them to life. The work, then, carries layers of information and offers alternative possibilities.
