I love Chris’ statement so much that I might have posted it even without the evidence of his interesting work.
“Rusting, corroding and disintegrating found metal objects inspire my practice. As the form related to their functions wanes with decay, they reach a point where they become useless and their original purpose obscured by their degenerated appearance. I explore this transitional point in which an object that looks decayed crosses this boundary into losing its function. I translate some of these observed qualities by using stretching, tearing and cracking to give a worn and decayed surface. This process results in the impression of a functionless pot, challenging the preconceived language of function in pottery.”
