Crucible Series

Porcelain, various materials. Ongoing.

Handmade ceramic crucibles filled with various non-ceramic materials and fired. This series references the historical development of ceramics and outward to create a pyrolysis collection. This process subjects these materials to extreme heat, creating residues and traces of alchemical transformation. Such transformation is at the heart of the ceramic process and can stand as a metaphor for other kinds of heat. This is what is left behind after the fire has gone out.
