Rebecca Manson’s Come Closer and the View Gets Wider is on View in NYC Now! #ArtTuesday

NewImage

Seriously folks, sipping a coffee and admiring this piece by Rebecca Manson is one of our favorite work break activities. From The Tribeca Trib:

The piece, conceived four years ago, took a year to come together and for six weeks alone, Manson said, she was tearing off bits of clay and would “roll, smush, smush” them into the bone-like parts, to be fired and glazed and stored in piles, then organized by shape and color.

Manson started with a four-foot-diameter model of the work, then figured out how to structurally scale it up so that it could be strong enough to be supported. She composed the pieces on a fiberglass dome that served as a mold. Removed from the mold, the two sculptural hemispheres were joined together on a specially fabricated aluminum structure.

Manson, a trained ceramicist, said she wants to change the public perception of ceramics as a small, fragile art form. “I want to push the expectations of what ceramics can be,” she said, “and show how tough it is.”
