The exhibition on Voulkos at Museum of Art and Deign got me excited. Actions and movements you can feel from his works are wonderful. It is not my instinct to leave freshly cut edges like that. I was thinking that thick slab of clay was motionless and lifeless and I was inclined to go thin, so it would show its fluidity but this show changed that view. The part that talked about his process relating to his interest in Jazz and Flamenco music resonated with me and excited me.
