"My work has a timeless simplicity where I aspire to capture a monumental feeling in a small-scale object. I am inspired by the irregularity of architectural ruins."
Eileen Young creates handsome one-of-a-kind and production mirrors and clocks inspired by the artist's extensive clay and printmaking experience. To begin each piece, Young creates tiles cut from porcelain clay slabs. Each tile's texture is created by rolling collographs over the clay. After firing, color is applied and collage is added to complete the image. The tile face is then protected with several applications of sealant. The finished tiles are set and grouted into custom poplar frames.
