Where are the pots going? Here is one aspect that I am addressing right now. The ideas behind the work continue and as those of you that have known me I have been in pursuit of sculptural flower vases based in part on my observations of the Midwest landscape. I have lived in Wisconsin, Minnesota and now Iowa each producing a very different yet similar atmosphere. The image shown here is the start of what I am currently working on. These are broken down images……sketches I have done of the outbuildings found clustered about the Iowa landscape. Each piece is a positive for a press mould. This will allow for a type of simple plaster mould to be made so that I can handbuild individual pieces resulting in a type of sculptural approach to the flower vase. I will add more images and thoughts as the work progresses.
