"Marc Leuthold, Ceramics"
1999-10-02 until 1999-11-14
Everson Museum of Art
Syracuse, NY, USA United States of America

For the past ten years, the artist Marc Leuthold has focused on creating intricately carved ceramic discs, wheels, and cones. Leuthold incises his forms' surfaces with complex patterns of rippling rays that emanate from a central, often hollow, disk. The intricate carving highlights the process of the works' making: proceeding without a preliminary sketch, the artist wields a sharp knife with precision, quickly cutting at one angle and then its complement to excise wedges of clay. Each cut seems to be a revelation, to be considered on its own and in relationship to the previous cut, so that Leuthold discovers carving techniques and patterns as he works, just as he embraces the accidental and irregular. The deeply carved surfaces are experiments with light and line, but are visually organized by fundamental geometric principles. Leuthold works in earthenware, stoneware, and porcelain, which he sometimes glazes, but also effectively leaves in the biscuit stage. A diversity of historic, artistic, scientific, and spiritual considerations informs the making of Leuthold's radiating circular forms, ranging from the porcelains of the Sun Dynasty to Merovingian metal work, from astronomical notions about the cosmos to the near universal significance of the circle in world religions.
