Fields & Wagner
By purchasing the Fields & Wagner Pairing you will receive two artworks, one ceramic pendant lamp by my Fields and one print by Elise Wagner.
The artists are pictured here next to representative artwork - this is artwork they have made but does not necessarily reference the artwork they will make their PDX-CSA projects.
Below each of the artists has described their intentions for their PDX-CSA project.
You can purchase the Pairing (with an applied 10% discount) or if you prefer you may purchase just one of the artist's Projects by selecting the Add Project to Cart option below their individual summary.
Amy Fields's porcelain pendant lamps, cool when not illuminated, become warm with use, the variance in thickness subtly shifting the color, which also shines through piercings and cutouts. The landscape of the lamps is lively, with abstract clusters of spines crowding together, causing the lamps to resemble puffer fish or stalactite-covered cave walls, then receding to smooth porcelain punctuated by cutouts that balance design with function.
Porcelain. 6 inches x 6 inches x 6 inches. $300.
Using the hybrid encaustic collagraph technique she pioneered, Elise Wagner combines the bold carvings of her encaustic paintings with the subtle tones and precise lines of printmaking. In this project, inspired by salt pans in India, Wagner balances textures and perspectives: incised lines and worn traces of coded language seemingly near to hand, while rough, topographical masses appear distantly below, excavations seen from high altitude.
Print on paper. 6 x 6 inches (11 x 15 inches overall paper size). $300.
