STACTS, conceived by reimagining scrap pieces of extruded rigid foam board left over from previous projects. The resulting sculptural organic shape was translated into a plaster mold by which a ceramic slip casting is made. A glaze and then the traditional raku firing method was used. These objects have a geometry and finish that approximate constructions from an un-discovered civilization, and then un-earthed after a millennia. Yet the concept and assemblage is very much grounded in 21st century materials wedded with ancient alchemy and engineering. Blurring the lines between what is old and new.
