Check it out - Debuse-on-the-Loose- Chandra Debuse
My graduate school experience was as much defined by my studio mates as it was by the course work . I was fortunate to share a studio with a few amazing artists. (TJ Erdahl, Patrick Coughlin, Beau Raymond, Magda Gluzcek, Chris Pickett-Click on their names for websites) One of these, Chandra Debuse, has just launched a website of her work. http://chandradebuse.com
For surface decoration fans her work is a tutorial on how to use line to define form and space. She says of her work "I use images of squirrel antics as metaphors for goal-driven, yet impulsive human behaviors. The ceramic forms are composed of rhythmic, bouncing lines, referencing the path a squirrel takes as it scampers among trees. As squirrels poke their heads around corners looking for the nut, human fingers seek out their own nourishment by roaming the topography of a plate. "
She also has a virtual sketchbook (blog) Debuse-On-The-Loose that is definitely worth checking out. Chandra is currently an artist in residence at the Armory Art Center in West Palm Beach, FL.
