Michael Schwegmann


I hand form all these pieces out of porcelain clay. I use wheel-thrown, extruded, and hand-modeled parts without casting molds. I create ceramic representations of common objects through attentive, selected details and surfaces. Most works reference objects relating to labor and hands-on activities. Instead of trompe l’oeil sculptures, these look like memories of objects or icons. I alter and combine these icons to engage intellect and emotion in unexpected ways.
