"Sequential/Consequential" refers to my material-based, process-oriented approach to creating ceramic sculptures. A guiding principle of my thesis activities is centered around expressing temporal accumulation of the art making process in a visual dialogue. The working properties of clay have physical characteristics that change over time. Beginning first with a wet, malleable material, the transformation during drying and kiln firing create a stone-like final product. While in many cases the final product is just that, final, I explore how to expand upon that linear history. My creative process involves multiple components to create a visual dialogue that explores the idea of time being a cyclical entity. Incorporating video recording devices, material processing and still image photography, I illuminate how geologic processes that may take millennia to occur can be experienced in a few minutes.
