I am attracted by clay, which interests me as a geological material evolving out of rock and containing various mineral and organic materials : they tell a story of life….
I feel I am continuing this story, using a gentle or violent transformation by fire.
I have a sense of participating in a phenomenon of combustion, where some measure of personal intention combines with overriding chemical and physical interaction.
I would like to draw a parallel between the geological transitions of minerals and the unfolding of life. Hubert Reeves said that we are made of stardust. Personally, I feel strongly this necessity to bring the mineral world and the living world closer together, both of them sharing an uncertain future.
