Paperclay Techniques for Sculpture
with Rosette Gault

(USA)
29th August - 4th September, 2012

To gain expressive and technical freedom, I created an optimum balance of recycled paper pulp (cellulose fiber) and clay that allowed me to invent or rather “realize” a system of non-linear construction and mixtures that are impossible with traditional ceramic clay to be fired in kilns. I was first to introduce these so called “radical” and “revolutionary” technical and expressive freedoms along with my recipe balance to get them. This idea had been a dream in the minds of many artists. And mixture of cellulose fiber and clay is a cornerstone for advance in sustainable materials technologies and products so needed by mankind.

My creative life integrates arts, sciences, music, and literary expression. I synthesize both aesthetic and technical realms of exploration in these fields. I strive to contribute to the cultural advance of my generation in a practical way.

Born in New York City, I started my artistic practice with clay with many outstanding teachers among them Betty Woodman and Larry Clark in Colorado in 1970. I earned my Master of Fine Arts, in Ceramics in 1978 from the University of Puget Sound, and my BA in Communication in 1975 from the University of Colorado- Boulder.

. . .

By the 1970s and 1980s I maintained a full time pottery, tile, and limited edition sculpture production clay studio after a stint as art director in a Seattle ad agency. I sold, exhibited, and taught ceramics mostly in North America. Clients included fine craft galleries and Nieman Marcus department stores. After hundreds of exhibitions and support by the sales of small works, in 1990, I was awarded an artist residency at Canada’s Banff Centre for the Arts.

In 1990’s my art practice expanded as I explored installation, video, and music at Banff Centre. I began composing music at that time. Back in Seattle to respond to the overflowing mailbox with artists asking me technical questions about my paperclay, I wrote and illustrated my first book. I was awarded a US Patent. I had to close my studio production for a while to be at the desk. However, I traveled for teaching, work periods and residencies: New Zealand, Australia, Finland, Denmark, UK, Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Canada- and briefly India and China and Sweden. Over the years, I also traveled and worked/studied clay in Italy, France, Spain, Switzerland, Mexico, Nicaragua, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay.


I have been encouraging the mutual advance and development of ceramic and visual art worldwide.

Between 1998- 2009, in addition to ceramic sculpture, and updating editions of my books, I compose music and poetry, paint and began to author an animation interactive on line game project. I assisted with early stage research on the potential for porous paperclay for water filtration in developing regions and wrote a report published 2011.
