About the Piece

This work is part of a series of ceramic works that explore organic gestures such as a cough, a sneeze, a spitting action, or a bend. Purple hair specifically explores the bend and the deconstruction of a cube. Fragile dyed grass is used as the gesture that both constructs and separates the reading of the form as a cube. The weight and gravity of the ceramic structure are revealed in the bending of the purple hair-like nature.


These works are formal explorations of the organic element upon the structure. They also explore color and surface elements.

All works in this series are pit-fired ceramics.

Material: stoneware, dyed grass
