Chris Gustin  

Chris Gustin built his first wood kiln as a professor at University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth as a way to get his students involved in a group and community activity.Seeing the possibilities for his own surfaces, he turned his work in a new direction, with his forms becoming simpler and larger in scale.Gustin uses the combination of heavy melted ash deposits on glazed surfaces to highlight his often anthropomorphic forms and to convey movement.He is interested in how glaze and ash interface and works with the viscosity of surface, whether fluid or stable, to come up with an aesthetic and vocabulary specific to his work

"I want my sculpture to test the borders of response, positive versus negative, desirable versus undesirable, beautiful versus ugly, life versus decay, mankind versus nature"
