Grand Gestures: 3 - 5 Feet

This commanding sculpture pushes the boundaries of ceramics in size and expression. A mix of strength and sensitivity transforms as much as 700 pounds of static clay into supple, dramatic gestures reaching five feet. The forms are simultaneously powerful and sensual, strong yet vulnerable.

Because clay preserves the imprint of every touch, intimately building by hand on such a large scale creates surprisingly personal, almost fleshy surfaces. The impression of emotions flows through every sweeping curve and fills every waiting hollow.
