Amber Ginsburg and I have been collaborating since 2007. Our individual practices are vastly different from one another, yet we share interest in material histories and labor with a special fondness for the rich history of terracotta. Ceramics as material and process is tied to patterns of performance and community through shared labor and movement dictated by the processes of preparation, production and use. We draw much of our inspiration from Nicolas Bourriaud’s Relational Aesthetics as our projects expose material and labor in a social sphere. Our audience is made to be a part of the conversation as they help define the experience and potential of the work.
