I worked on a textured canvas using silica to echo the clay in the works of these ceramic artists from the Oaxacan Central Valley area of Mexico. This piece shows the transition of ceramics coming from the kiln and floating across mid-ground, as if in a state of evolution. Some broken pieces are the reality of firing works in a traditional wood-fired and open pit approach.
