Suzanne Vicenzotti | Artist statement |
"For me, clay is the most fundamental and haptic material, wonderfully malleable to sculpt and form. It contains an energy which is transformed through the alchemy of firing, allowing my ideas to become solid. As a sculptor, I enjoy the physical act of making, working with contrasting clay bodies and experimenting with additions and glazes to create dynamic effects. My work can be described as organic abstraction, fragmented and manipulated, the drawings and sculpture reference the atavistic quality of Neolithic sites and the energy that they emit. I am inspired by natural forms which reflect the powerful forces of the natural world, creating a strong sense of physical and visual tension.
Sculptural pieces are made in combinations of clay with lava glazes and fired to create geological surfaces. Pieces are layered and include locally sourced clay from a forest near where I live. My work is suitable for indoor and outdoor locations."
Pieces will also be available to view and purchase in our commercial gallery The Quarter.
