Work Surface



Referencing the ancient concept of the coil pot, Work Surface explores the marks left behind in the process of making. While the canvas work surface used to roll the clay coils hangs on the wall, I place myself into the negative space of the coils themselves, wearing a garment made from canvas. The subsequent marks left on the garment are visual remains of what has happened in the event of making, lines marking the turning of my body and the movement of the clay. In the end, the object of the work is the surface of making, not the clay itself, which must be broken to realize the marks it has made. I become the tool.
