ELSA MANN

"Jagged Edge"
medium - clay, Raku fired / found objects

The pain of loss is the inspiration behind this piece. Feelings that are rough and raw, exposed and present.

 

 

 

"Wood, Clay and Fire" (triptych)
medium - clay, Raku fired / wood/found objects/horse hair

The organic essence of what we are, is all that is left of us when we pass. These pieces capture the simplicity of our being.

 

 

 

 

"Death of a Las Vegas Show Girl"
clay, Raku fired / feathers/found objects


Our culture includes individuals who follow the mainstream as well as those just a bit off kilter. This urn represents the fringe in our society...made up...electric...and very disconnected from the natural world.

The use of clay in the rituals of burial are as old as time. Potters are markers in history, ...evolving, ...changing and representing a specific period of time and their culture. They do this through the characteristics they incorporate into their works. My vessels are a part of this continuum. My use of objects found in nature is a way of connecting the organic nature of man to his natural surroundings and is ultimately a reflection of his organic end state. Earth to earth.
