It was essential that the work be multi dimensional, not flat. In preparation, I began experimenting with multi-layered substrates to test out how the structure would be built, before leaving for Italy. I wanted to be sure that everything would work out in the limited time frame we would have on site in Ploaghe.
Once I had this figured out, I felt confident that I could execute my plan on site in Sardinia. I'm very happy for that preparation, as it helped everything to move along smoothly one I arrived on site. Here's my completed Symposium work.
"Find Your Own Path and Leave a Trail"
70 x 100 cm - Smalti, dinnerware, ceramic, stone, cork, cork tree bark & sea polished tile
A few months after my return from Sardinia, I was eager to get back to the experimental layered substrate, and finish the work which had played such a significant role in my success at the symposium.
19" x 12" x 3" - Dishes, stone, ceramic, stained glass, fused glass, gold
& mother of pearl shells, on a hand build cementitious substrate.
About a year later, I created yet another from the same series of drawings. There are more drawings in the series, so there may be more on the way.... Which way?
"Which One Way"
20" x 16" - dinnerware, hand made ceramic, vitreous and stained glass
"Choose Wisely" & "Which One Way" are available.
A list of other available works is here.
