Faces, Vases, and Forms:
Figurative ceramic work fired in Anagama and Soda kilns


My ceramic work comes directly from the modernist art traditions of the 1920's and 30's; my forms are derived from the human figure as Picasso or Klee might have perceived it, a powerful language, but with added contemporary tension and abstraction. I wood- fire in soda or in the Japanese- style anagama; these atmospheric strategies, modulated by the lick of wood flame in the kiln, create forceful palettes and fluid surfaces with which the artist moves on the ragged edge of control. Soda, in particular, yields a surface tantalizingly close to human skin in look as well as feel but with dramatic departures echoing the flame and ash. The chemistries of soda and ash result in complex colors and textures; the viewer can sense both the form and the flame."

Watch Frank as he shares the story of how his ceramic art work is kiln fired as he loads and then removes the finished pieces from a Soda kiln.
