Welcome

In my work I strive to elicit a visual exploration of form and structure. Initial inspections lead to discoveries as the layering creates the opportunity to reveal what is hidden or induces frustration at not being able to access every aspect of the work. Faint impressions created by the physical impact of one surface on another heighten feelings of distance and tension. Physical manifestations of cast shadows serve to give substance to both objects and their voids while raising questions as to what is real and what is not. Multiples and abstraction aid in reflecting or obfuscating what is seen, creating interactions that mimic our own inner and interpersonal relationships, interactions that are filled with tension and complexity.

Dirt x Digital: A Southern Survey in Clay

Dirt x Digital

The application of digital tools and manufacturing technologies in ceramic art represents an exciting evolution of the field. An increasing array of digital practices such as CNC milling, laser cutting, 3D printing and scanning are invigorating both sculptural and functional artwork. Dirt x Digital showcases educators who integrate new technologies with traditional media in both their creative research and classrooms. The inclusive and engaged environment of Clemson’s research campus represents an important connection to expose more students, and by extension, a larger community, to how new technologies are being used for creative purposes within the context of ceramic art and education.
