“I consider clay work to be a mode of invention, an effort to pull form out of inchoate matter. I would say that my inspiration is often derived from an eclectic mix – nature and plant growth, animal skeletons, machinery, scrap yard treasures, and international travel.” -Mark Gordon

Mark Gordon’s ceramic and mixed-media sculptures, shown in “Material of Invention,” echo ancient vessels, architectural fragments, bio morphology, or are composed of the simple, juxtaposition of three-dimensional geometries. In them, Gordon considers and develops his impressions of many modes of clay work – from brick making to primitive and contemporary pottery – that he gathered in places as disparate as the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Spain, Brazil, and New Zealand.
