My Vision of Peace
My installation piece is asking for piece in a way that no other could do it! I mixed Music and ceramics together, which has never been done. I believe it represents peace because it is a peaceful piece to witness. It gives a cozy feeling that could only be found in nature through a cave. The sound resonates through the ceramic pot in the same manner as in the cave!
This piece is also a huge stress reliever for me because when I work on building the pots I feel happy and at ease! I feel freedom in it's most powerful way and it's going straight through my entire body. This feeling that I have is that of peace because when I'm free I'm at peace and when I'm doing what I love, the peace emanates from my projects. To fully understand I believe that seeing my video on youtube is necessary. Paste this link in your search bar and you're good to go. www.youtube.com/watch?v=mdWb9HDpzEw

BTW IGNORE THE WRITINGS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PICTURE. THEY WERE FOR MY SHOW IN MAY 2011!!!

My pots were hand built and after they are fired I mount in a speaker inside of the pot. Depending on shape and size the resonation might be longer, louder, or deeper. The idea is to play with the sound wave, to build vessels that will change the sound wave as it travels throught the ceramic pot. I have built single ones for the moment but I have a prototype that combines three pots into one making it an amazing resonator. Now my plan is to evolve from there to connect a bunch of ceramic pots together in different geometrical shapes such as straight lines or circles. This is going to be one of my life long projects because music is one of my favorite expressions on earth and clay is one of the oldest practiced art form that is still alive and I am sure that it's ressilliency will prove to be a great sign of peace for the world!
