All-AZ Clay Exhibition April 2013
AZ Clay exhibition at Peoria City Hall Gallery 2013
Only three weeks to see Praise Him, Christmas Turkey and Flight,
lyrical pieces, but the show is mythological and epic. The Blue Ribbon
to Kazuma Sambe for Whale Soda. He also has Goldfish and Tuna Soda,
takes on commericalism and marketing. Working on Goldfish Smoothie,
underglazes on Amador clay, pretty thin, ten pound fish pieces. Vertical
Japanese writing as advertisements explaining the value of Whale Soda.
Japanese orthography closer to the ideograms that originate the alphabet
maybe. Mine have no intellect dimension, surprising maybe in a writer,
opposite from clay, never designed. From the moment. Kazuma called this
an unconscious technique opposite his own. The unconscious is only ever
known by looking back on its leavings, so the insight belongs to the
viewer, not vested in an idea of the telling. Immediately current, a
huge porcelain emperor's face is to have a hat, but not a Pope's Hat
suggesting Antichrist, religion and state joined. So no hat at all. Myths lend
significance. A recent story, What a Dog Coyote Sings AI-AI-OO-OO and Other Visions
of Iisaw, (under review) constructed over a twenty year period as a tail off of Overflights of Pedro Escadero, was thought out, built consciously line by line, sound by sound. The clay exhibits are some kind of meditation finished in a few hours of composition in two days, dry two days, bisque, glaze two days, then final fire. Here are some pics of the exhibition.
