Previously shown at Miami 2021 for $7,500.00.
In his most current work “Crucible” the ceramic cylinder is the one constant and it is the building up of the surface that is dynamic. Minerals are applied in repeated layers and fused in the fire. Curiosity, chance, and material phenomenology play out in the creation of the work. There are both real and imagined allusions to the physical sciences, earth formation, geographic phenomenon, force, pyroclastic work, time, and landscape that appear in the work. Marsh may send work back to the kiln five or more times applying different mineral concoctions between firings. There is no note-taking or record of the sequence of events in this process that might lead to a particular end result, in that way each piece is unique.
Multiple fired clay and glaze.
24.1 x 16.5 x 24.1 cm (9.5 x 6.5 x 9.5 in)
