Title: The Time Machine
Size: 20″h x 17″w x 2″d
Light and Shadow: It takes a Time Machine to let you know whether your part of the globe is in light or shadow. This one can expand this awareness to two more regions of the earth.
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.
