2012 ArtPrize Entry
Add to Collection

For Art Prize, I plan to show a hanging piece that will be made of thousands of paper thin porcelain sheets of clay. They will be translucent and light and will perfectly display the inherent pleasures of working with porcelain. My hope is to captivate the imaginations of a wide range of audiences with a material and work that crosses all cultures and time. The image above is a conceptual drawing of what the final ceramic piece might look like at my preferred venue. See other pages here for more information and possible installation concepts. It may be accompanied by several 30 foot long linear prints that are pictured here in the next images or it may be shown on its own. See the final image that depicts my current aesthetics and sensitivities expressed as a functional and utilitarian cup.

Venue & Connection Information

I will require a space with high ceilings and the ability to hang or suspend the work from above. The space will be open and airy and potentially outside but marking an entrance. The work is highly scalable and I plan to work with venues to decide the best space to show the work.

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: Yes
  • Outdoor Space needed: Yes
  • Audio/Video needed: No
  • Electrical needed: No
