Chip Vander Wier creates curious sculptural objects that incorporate ceramics, steel and wood. These sculptures and low-relief wall pieces are inspired by non-linear ideas of spirituality, time and place. Combining traditional ceramic construction and hand-building techniques with 19th century Eastern European firing techniques, he produces intriguing visual components juxtaposed with forms that incorporate modern chemical plating processes and finishes.
