Steinbeisser_Food_03.jpg

My work has a solid foundation in material. I am drawn to the color, texture, and feel of clay. The way in which clay records the mark of the touch shows a raw gesture of movement of the maker. This emotive connection to object making predates historical record keeping and holds its roots to the deepest parts of human nature and desire. Studying the history of ceramics and art in general, I have developed a palette that is derived in material methodology. I have always been intrigued in experimental methods of art making, and my process of creating comes from a place of the historical, personal, and contemporary.

I use clay as a means of expressing my perceptions of time and space. The prevalence of time in my work is activated by present and geological time.  I am interested in conceptual abstraction of ceramics as a material. I see clay as both fragile and durable, sophisticated and primitive. I create artwork that reflects natural formations while embracing new technologies and contemporary practices. I derive my conceptual ideas from environmental and political landscapes and respond to my surrounding in whichever setting I find myself in, both physically and mentally.
