Clay Works by Beth Stichter

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 30, 2012
Pasadena, California artist Beth Stichter isn’t your typical sclupture - she builds her stoneware sculptures solid on metal armatures, often with 2,000 or more pounds of clay at a time, then cuts the piece into 30-160 sections, hollows each section out to 1/4" thickness, and reassembles them before firing. In order to work on a larger scale, the reassembled hollow pieces are then cut again to fit inside the kiln, fired, and then reassembled with glues and epoxies.
