~Fold~

Fold is a series of ceramic sculptures that explore the boundaries of material and the characteristics of form. They have been developed from an ongoing interest of applying fixed processes to making by pushing the limits of clay to reveal tension and movement in both surface and form.

 

Each sculpture is assembled from the rhythmic stacking of parian clay spheres, deliberately distorted by following the specific steps of a making process – Repetition, Compression, Fold and Cut.

 

The results translate a theme of duality in their appearance – the contrast of visual distortion and precision, the stillness and movement in form and the surface deception between synthetic and organic.
