Suzanne Stumpf: Changeable Views, 2007, 15.5”w x 6”h x 4.5” d (window structure), handbuilt porcelain; reduction fired to cone 10The interactive sculpture Changeable Views is a very modular work—the windows may be left open or up to four of the twelve tiles may be inserted to create many varied views. The tiles have colors on one side and patterns of black and white on the reverse. Although the tiles were lined up flat and adjacent to each other when a number of colored glazes were applied (so technically there is an “order” to the tiles), the tiles “dialogue” and create interest in any number of combinations.Metaphorically, windows offer the opportunities to look outward, inward, more deeply, and in new directions. The interactive play possible in this piece is intended as a meditation for its audience.

Suzanne Stumpf: All the Little Cups of my Thoughts, 2010, 17”w x 10”d (tray dimensions), handbuilt with wheelthrown components; porcelain and porcelain paperclay; oxidation fired to cone 10The beautiful and charming Buddhist mediation: “I will drink thy consciousness as joy and bliss from all the little cups of my thoughts” inspired this work. Each cup possesses a slightly different form and exterior texture, while I limited the interiors to a palate of blues and greens.The “gridded” tray evokes a chess board which is appropriate to the tenor of the work as chess is a quiet, concentrated activity.
