We as human beings are composed of layers, manifested through time as we grow and develop in life. Our “human layers” can be likened to the layers of surface built up on the walls of an old home. Some layers remain covered and hidden, some revealed through wear, age, and time. Layers can be thick, guarding the wear and tear of the outside world, while others thin and fragile.
In my current body of work, I strive to show these layers through the use of multiple surface treatments from pre-firing to post firing, including resists, underglaze, sandblasting, decaling, and lustering.
