Exhibition Title: The Stable Grenade
These forms are loosely based on the Hand Grenades shapes from the Vietnam war. I choose this style because my father served in Vietnam.
The pieces are a physical paradoxical respresentation of the human psyche. Destructive and capable of deep compassion. Explosive and stable. Chaotic and ordered. Ugly and exquisite. My intention is for viewers to enjoy the beautiful Raku surface, but at the same time observe the shadow aspect of the vessel. The duality of own complex natures are often hidden with in the constructs of conformity.
