Ceramic Wall Sculpture
One of a Kind
Raku fired hand-textured tile wall sculpture. "Evan Roe" is made of parallelogram-shaped (square) tiles that the artist rolled by hand. Before she cuts large slabs of clay into individual tiles, she textures the slabs with many different objects including a meat tenderizer, chrome trim from a car (Kammback) and a printed circuit board. Like snowflakes, no two tiles are alike. The raku firing process creates iridescent luster glazes and velvety blacks to highlight the colorful glazes.
"Evan Roe" is a two-part piece with one adjacent side. It's a patchwork reimagining of two separate portraits, both of which had wonderful colors and patterns.
