Eric Gorder  Clay Artist
Conceptual Based Installations and Sculptures
By addressing conceptual ideas that individual vessel forms cannot fully convey, my installations and sculptures allow an even greater freedom within the clay medium. Vessel-oriented sensibilities are still evident because I investigate sculpture and installation space as a volume or vessel needing to be filled. My sculptures utilize the same building methods used to create my hand-built vessels. Because of their scale, these objects often need molds, platforms, and interior structures to support the clay during forming, firing, and/or installation.
