Gorgy – Podgy

Gorgy – podgy series are forms I evolved,using trees as my inspiration. Trees are Nature’s gladiator, who despite great imbalance in odds, fight to keep a foothold in the most extreme conditions.

Their roots lie deep in the ground drawing up nutrients and providing a solid base.

Its canopy contains leaves that draw energy from their surroundings. The trunk stands above the ground providing material strength for the whole tree………  These elements have been explored while working on the form.

The clay has been allowed to bend and turn as it wants to naturally, the same way the trees bend towards sunlight.
