Mitch Iburg Ceramics
The content of my work is synonymous with the setting in which it is made. By investigating the clay deposits, mineral resources, and geological expressions inherent to specific regions, I seek to create work which combines the physiological substance and emotional characteristics of place to form an expression of its terroir.
Bodies of work naturally diverge as variations related to content, forming technique, surface treatment, and firing method arise in response to the unique characteristics and historical contexts of the resources found in each setting. Collectively, I view each body of work as a specific resolution to the tensions between artistic intent and the intrinsic properties of wild harvested materials.
