CHA CHA

IMG_2208.PNG

This series of works are an interpretation of the Afro-Cuban 1950’s dance movement “Cha-Cha”. The flowing ruffles of the dancers’ dress and shirts are apparent in undulating curves and vibrant colors used to create these hand thrown, Grolleg porcelain vessels. Porcelain has been the catalyst for “decorative arts” through the millennium, from ancient carved Chinese vases to the ornate vessels of 18th century France.  In keeping with tradition, with an eye on current day aesthetics, Debra has created pieces with a new technology of firing and oxide colorant discoveries. These new advancements in the ceramic field have enabled her to produce unmuted colors with micro-crystalline glazes as well as clay bodies that are more “plastic” in nature; which contribute to the aid of throwing large pieces on the wheel and taking porcelain to its limits.
