I have been working with Joni Moriyama at her open studio for nearly three years now. I have been playing primarily with slab construction, in some cases carving moldes with graphic patterns (running deer, chrysanthemums...), sometimes working with globular forms, and most recently, working with draped and folded sheets of ceramic that play with a sense of fabric and drape.
I will present a few of these threads of inquiry over the next while. Today I am sharing documentation of my Fold series, thus far. This is an ongoing exploration, two new pieces glazed yesterday and not yet fired. I love the feeling of suspense, waiting to see how these will turn out! In the meantime, here are the first four experimental pieces. Also, the geometric woven fabric used in some of these images is a fabric I wove in 2016.
