David Clarke

While checking out postings on facebook this morning, I came across my friend Arthur Hash's posting about David Clarke's anticipated lecture at his school (SUNY New Paltz). I have to admit I did not recognize the name but when I saw some of the work, it rang a bell.

What great work! This probably points to my own bias but I love how the traditional forms - spoons, teapots - become something new, sculptural, less utilitarian, but still reference their original shape and function. Also, I enjoy the seemingly playful and experimental attitude that resonates from the work.
