Thoughts on my work....

I am in love with objects. Sometimes new objects, but usually old, used objects that speak to me of their past life. I want to own them, possess them, intimately explore their curves and corners, dimples, dots, swirling lines or smooth broad planes.

 

When I find an object I particularly love - an ashtray, a candy dish, a lampshade, even a toilet plunger – I make a mold so that I can recreate it again and again. I pare the object down to pure form, taking away original function, color, and material, leaving nothing to distract from the beauty of the original design.

 

I assemble and re-assemble these forms, at times combining various bits and pieces into new objects, alternately using the casts in an unaltered state, repeating each form multiple times, building larger abstract installations, creating emphasis through repetition. Light and shadow on lustrous white ceramic surfaces emphasize the lines and planes that originally called to me. I add in other materials, balancing an abundance of color and texture with the purity of the ceramic forms to create large compositions that encompass walls and rooms.

Hello Chanda,

Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us! Your crafthaus membership is valid through May 15, 2015.

Please look around, add your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussions and post images and video. Crafthaus is a participatory sport so don't hold back. We truly welcome your blogs, discussions and comments. This is the point of crafthaus!

Please note that ALL images sent to the website are vetted to assure a measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Our members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience so the photos have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light. From the many images received daily, we aim to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however, with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect! If your images don't get posted they do not meet crafthaus quality standards. Please refer to the photo guidelines under the FAQ tab for questions.

If there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via crafthauseditor at live dot com, I will do my best to be of help. I hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun. If you have some time, please take a look at this document, it provides background info about our network and can help to get you off to a good start.

Again: Welcome !

Brigitte Martin
