Devitrified - Colby Charpentier, 2018-19 Artist In Residence
This exhibition challenges the boundaries of ceramic art: What if we took clay out of the vessel and glaze was all that remained? What does it mean to replicate a 3-D printing process by hand? The result is ceramic: glass, devitrified.
This show is built from a fascination with glazes and ceramic materials. During my residency at the Ceramics Program - Office for the Arts at Harvard, I’ve been researching and testing materials and procedures to take a fresh look at how we approach contemporary clay.
The process that I developed for this work has me hand-printing vessels and balloons the time to produce a single vase out to 40-plus hours. In that time-frame, I make thousands of decisions about where the profile is heading.View more
