BEAUTY AND NATURAL FORCES PART I
Location: Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts
Materials: Locally processed terracotta
Measurements 3' x 3' x 4'
First work of a pair of sister pieces exploring the fleeting and controlling nature of beauty when subjected to natural forces. This work was hand built on site at Watershed, from locally processed clay, and allowed to disintegrate over a week long period. It is subjected to sun, thunderstorms, insects, and the shrinking and expanding of dry/wet material leading to its ultimate destruction.
