ALAN BRAIDFORD

Metaphysical Narratives

Question: How Can Texture and Materiality Inform the Metaphysical Narrative of a Ceramic Practice?

 

Alan Braidford explores how texture and materiality can inform the metaphysical narrative of a ceramic practice. Alan experiments with burn out techniques and the use of steel as both a framing solution and textural effect in his sculptural work. Casts of archetypal forms are staged in imaginary settings; sometimes violated, restricted or tormented through piercing and inclusions. Fractures, rust, scale and colour combine with ceramic effects to enhance a narrative concerned with such themes as time, memory and free will.
