PATRICIA KOCHAVER

This body of work speaks to my love and fascination of form and surface. The large scale spherical forms seek to evoke a sense of fullness and potential, they seem to inhale. They also create an ideal canvas for the flames in the firing. Each piece has been fired several times, and some of the remnants of initial firings show through to the final firing, creating complex surfaces a single firing couldn’t achieve. With multiple firings new marks are discovered and this is the impetus to keep experimenting. Each challenge brings new potential and the desire to keep going. My hope is that the continuing study and understanding of process and materials allows these forms to transcend method and evolve into that idea or concept that I see in my mind’s eye.
