Paula and Robert Winokur
Porcelain is a material usually thought of as delicate, fragile and transparent. Considered the primary clay from which all other clays are derived, it comes from the earth as pure white, strong and durable. Fired it can resemble both snow and ice, depending on surface texture and treatment. Porcelain attracted me because of these qualities, rather than it's transparency. I have chosen to work with this clay because it has allowed me to explore issues in the landscape without making literal interpretations.
My work has been influenced by information gathered at various "sites", places in the natural environment that I have responded to visually. The earth itself particularly cliffs, ledges, crevices, and canyons: the effects of wind, earthquakes, glaciers and natural phenomenon such as geological "shifts" and "faults" interest me.
