RIDDLE, Liza--Ceramics

Liza RIDDLE

Born: 1953
Medium: ceramics

August, 2020

Through my work in clay, I seek to capture a moment in time, express the powerful forces of nature, and celebrate the earth’s elemental palette of colors.

My minimalist sculptures evoke fire, desiccation and desertification, and ultimately, the transformation of landscapes, whether from natural or human causes. I explore these concepts using simple geometric forms: spheres, hemispheres, cubes, and wedges. These are defining shapes in our world, including everything from soap bubbles to the stars above us to pyramids and geodesic domes.

My works are quiet, but resonate with contained energy and evoke a sense of power; they might have been charred by fire or cracked by drought. I draw from my academic background in science and art to create my work, using natural phenomena to create a cracked surface, and my own mixtures of water soluble metals for coloration. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the prestigious NCECA competition in the United States, and the 11th International Ceramics Competition in Mino, Japan.

I invite viewers to imagine what proceeded and might follow the moment I have recorded in clay, while reflecting on nature, the effects of climate change, and how our world is changing over time.
