My family’s home burned to the ground. Here is a video of a tile project I began as resident artist at Hurleyville Maker's Lab at The Center for Discovery. This is the result and collaboration with my partner Erica Ganzell who wrote the poem.

This ekphrastic ceramic video poem amplifies demonstration and documentation, conjoins process and product, moves the spectator to collaborator through a fusion of nature and technology, hand and machine, a hybrid of word, clay, image and sound. Form reflects content, out of fire comes ash, from destruction emerges creation.

Video poem of pit-fired earthenware tiles with laser-cut audio waves of my home fire and lone bird in the ashes.
