This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Eva Champagne. Her hybridized biomorphic sculptures highlight the infinity variety and unifying order that occur within the natural world. She says of the work, "By synthesizing abstracted formal references to animals, plants and geologic sources, I create intentionally ambiguous ceramic sculptures that exist in the fluid margin between categories. My aim is toward something composite that will challenge the habitual presumption that the object must be either one thing or another in favor of a more open “both/and/maybe” interpretation of form."
In the interview we talk about living overseas, the intellectual and spiritual interpretations of her hybrid forms, and her upcoming residency at the Gaya Ceramic Center in Bali. Eva has started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund her trip to Bali. To support her project visit her Kickstarter site by clicking here.
