Dust Prints

 

 

 

          Recent explorations in my practice have been dedicated to understanding the limits of clay in its many stages from dust, to wet slip, to unfired. These pieces have taken on an ephemeral quality, something we rarely associate with ceramics. These dust prints are part of a series exploring the temporary physicality of buildings or monuments torn down or destroyed by the temperaments of man. The images become distorted and ghostly through the process of screen printing with porcelain dust. The result is a fleeting, fragile reminder of the consequences of nature, time, and circumstance.
