2012 ArtPrize Entry

My entry is an abstract, three dimensional tile composition titled "Singularity." The work is being designed and produced specifically for ArtPrize with the hope of introducing contemporary expression in clay to the general public on a scale larger then most ceramic pieces. Once completed, the work will consist of 23 individual pieces. Many hours have been spent designing, creating, and processing both trail concept and finished product. Special design elements and innovative glazing techniques have been incorporated to create a unique experience. Photographs of the work in progress as well as a working sketch can be reviewed as part of my entry. The intent of "Singularity" is to juxapose a tangible relationship among line formation, surface tension, and pattern interaction from my esthetic point of view. I strive to communicate the personal struggle to find balance and harmony amidst discord. This is my own journey as an artist and human being. SCHEDULED COMPLETION DATE 6/15/12
