porcelainandpolaroid's Profile

About

I am a mixed-media artist, creating primarily photographs and hand-built clay objects. I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Pennsylvania State University. My training in clay includes instruction at Penn State, Baltimore Clayworks, and City College of San Francisco.
In recent work, I have combined photography and clay using the Polaroid transfer process, which involves exposing a color transparency to Polaroid film and transferring the image to clay slabs, rather than photographic paper. The result is more painterly than photographic, and the Polaroid transfer process allows for an unpredictability not typical of traditional darkroom photography.
