Feats Curator’s choice Charles Timm Ballard Statement
Feats of Clay
Feats Curator’s choice Charles Timm Ballard Statement The idea that I am making landscape images out of fused feldspathic material (ceramic), the stuff 98 percent of the earth’s surface is made up of, is critical to understanding the meaning of this work. This work brings the visual, tactile and material qualities of this landscape together with historical representations of landscape to create images of fused earthly materials.
