The Chase


Ceramic Wall Sculpture
by James Aarons

Earthenware, glaze
14″H, 28.5″W, 1″D

The Chase is a ceramic painting. A ghostly red tailed hawk chases a fiery mountain against the starkness of a pure white ground. Or is it the mountain chasing the hawk?


James Aarons is devoted to exploring the unexpected possibilities of ordinary clay.

“Whether taking the form of a ubiquitous bowl or a translucent and paper-like sheet, the clay speaks for what it is. Clay. Plus the alchemy of glaze and heat. Through the strength of its character, clay can arise into a seemingly other thing. But it is still clay.”
