Over the next several months Resoycled will be teaming up with local Denton artist, Given McClure to bring you limited edition candles poured into high-fired Stoneware. Here's a little bit about this project...
OBSERVATIONS BETWEEN LIGHT AND MATTER- A collaboration between Ceramic Artist, Given McClure and Candlemaker, Carrie Crumbley.
Given uses clay as a means to explore how specific visual interactions affect human behavior and stimulate the body's illusory experiences in altered spaces. Concepts of visual illusion, and the exchanges between matter and light, transform and re-form what it means to interact in space or with an object. Through examination of the work, the objects and images themselves become lost to the stimulus of perceptual responses and allow the viewer to engage in 'free play'. By filling these vessels with a wax and wick, Given and Carrie are able to further explore how these objects, now filled with light and fragrance, are able to transform a space and enhance an experience.
