BIOGRAPHY

ARTIST STATEMENT

I seek a dynamic and collaborative relationship with clay, the core material of my practice.  Working abstractly and directly with the material in different stages of plasticity, my work is process oriented and expressive.  I explore the tactile and emotional qualities of the material and the act of making.  I stretch, rip, roll and push the material to collapse and near ruin in search of new aesthetic qualities.  The hand of the artist is wholly evident, even aggressively obvious, as my fingers are my primary tools of intervention.  A rather intuitive approach, I embrace chance and work with an immediacy.  Time, movement, the inherent simplicity of the material and existence are marked.  I feel while I am making what I cannot say and I hope to make visible the impossible to describe.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at ceramics@amberzuber.com.
