Details of "A Frozen Moment"
"A Frozen Moment" is a new body of work being created as I continue my exploration of the blending of clay and fabric. I think the thing that fascinates me the most about bringing clay and fabric together is its ability to be molded into whatever my heart desires but also its ability to not be recreated into its exact position more than once. You could get it close but it will never be exactly the same. I am able to manipulate the slip-dipped fabric for a short time until the slip begins to dry, it then hardens and the fabric retains its shape. The moment is captured forever. If I try to move it once it has begun to dry, the slip cracks and resists. The moment is destroyed but a new moment is born.
