Comments About This Piece
The Splash Bowls series were inspired by the ocean tides. Movement is a central theme in my work and it prompted me to savor and share the calming captivating tease of seashore tides and their irregular peaked crests as they pushed over pebbled sand. With a minimal palette of black and white these delicate, three dimensional forms and their respective movement, are captured and abstracted, likened to photographic freeze-frame image. This series won the NICHE 2015 Award in sculpture.
The forms begin as thrown porcelain bowls in my home studio. I need to monitor their drying very carefully before I begin altering and shaping the delicate forms. The exterior surface is minimally embellished with slip trailing.
They are available as single bowls, or can be displayed as a set of 3, as seen in the image below. The medium and large bowls are also available on UGallery.
Sculpture refers to visual art objects that are 3-dimensional. Sculpture can be made with a wide range of materials, such as clay, wood, bronze, or found objects. The medium can also be constructed and assembled in a variety of ways, such as, molding, welding and carving.
