Harvey Meadows Statement

I think of ceramic objects as physical forms – as figure or volume – but also as more temporal structures: rhythms, transitions, and gradients.


I’ve used a range of processes and technologies in making this work – from digital models and computer controlled machines to building by hand with coils.  All of these processes create volumes, tessellations, geometry, but I’m particularly interested in the variety of textures and marks a process yields.


Music may be a good analogy for this aesthetic experience.  Of varied textures woven together.  The precision and geometry of a machine layered with the variability of a human hand.
