Pete introduced me to Pete Voulkos during our subject talk of repetition, sequence and outcomes. The main interest was based on his plates. But Voulkos’s hand building and aggressive behaviour towards clay attracted me the most. In the video above (that hopefully works) it projects Voulkos creating a sculpture, coiling, slicing, shoving and pushing. All actions taken place are very physical due to scale.
Incredibly expressive and industrial pieces. I absolutely love the physicality seen just by the final result as well as the process of making that we can imagine Voulkos went through to make these creations.
