Drawing with Dimensional Line is a study of line and form, two of the most basic principals of design. The work hopes to gain significance through the use of basic elements: unglazed porcelain and unfinished wood. The ceramic elements were created by wheel-throwing, extruding, and hand-buiding to simulate a hand drawn line within the confined space created by the wooden structure. The wooden structure facilitates the ceramic pieces, in this case, acting like a pedestal, and adding to the overall form. Just as drawings are often made as plans for buildings and houses, the form references temporary sub-structures that underlie the places we inhabit. The first sculpture was created for temporary installation in the lobby of Davison Architecture and Urban Design offices at 405 Southwest Boulevard, Kansas City, MO. The project was fueled by an assignment to exhibit work outside of the studio as a requirement for the BFA degree I was working on at the time (Aug-Dec 2010). This was followed by another variation titled “Structure v2” a month or so later which was installed in the Kansas City Art Institute Student Juried Exhibition. The project was conceived after researching the artist Robert Stackhouse during an internship at the Belger Arts Center the summer before. Stackhouse’s wooden structures are created as studies after which large scale drawings or paintings are made. I saw a thread of departure in the idea that a three-dimensional object could posses two-dimensional qualities.
