Jane B Grimm
My work is meant to stir the intellect and yet be meditative. My pieces are organic or biological in essence, looking like things one would see in nature. Repetition of form is another theme seen in my work. The scale of my sculptures range from the intimate to large-scale installations. Some artworks are ceramic paintings, ceramic forms attached to wood panels. Others sculptures are ceramic forms installed directly on the wall. Most recently I am making freestanding sculptures as well. My work is hand built, primarily using low fire clay and glazes. Form and color are important elements in my work. The seductive qualities of the ceramic medium of color and surface are used to attract the attention of the viewers so that they will spend time looking at the work, embarking on their individual journey of discovery.
