Title: Grand Central
Size: 23″h x 13″w x 2″d
Light and Shadow: The iridescent colors in Grand Central can only be seen by bringing it out of the shadows into bright light.
Statement: Phil Green began his pottery interest as a hobby about 1998. His intrigue with Raku firing began early. As he worked with pots and hand-built pieces, he began seeing the possibilities when raku glazes were mixed with conventional color glazes. When he made his first clock, he got hooked. These unique ceramic clocks are hand-carved in slabs of clay and then Raku fired. The flashing, followed by a smothering and smoldering process, produces iridescent patinas.
He has been making clocks and showing them in galleries and art shows since 2004. In the Albuquerque area his work is in Amapola Gallery on the Old Town Plaza. He also shows in Conley Pottery in Madrid south of Santa Fe. He has been in several art shows including New Mexico Arts & Crafts Fair, Weem’s International Artfest, and the Vail Art Fair.
