Chris Gustin: Slow Breath

Solo Gallery, March 11-April 29

Gustin's show SLOW BREATH takes simple pottery forms and jumps them up in scale as a vehicle for abstraction. The "body" scale speaks on a subliminal level to the entire histories of our experience. The surfaces inherent in woodfiring that come as a result of the heat, flame, glaze and ash all add a sense of "skin" to the surface of the clay. He explores the "breath" of the piece through the inhaling and exhaling of energies -- how that "skin" holds the interior space of the pot, and how he manipulates forms "around" that space allows analogy and metaphor to enter into the work.
