Read the interview with Shane Porter, Spotlight - May 2011

“My current practice explores the role and function of the vessel within ritual theory and practice. The Vessel contains and protects liquid which during the mass is transubstantiated from wine to the literal blood of Christ. I seek to convey feelings of silence, reflection and reverence by abstracting and subverting religious connotations and metaphors, referencing my uncertainty.” Shane Porter

Shane Porter graduated from the University of Ulster in 2010 with a 1st Class Honours degree in Fine and Applied Art.

    Ceramics Now Magazine
    : What is your present project, what’s its history and how do you make the pieces?

    Liza Riddle: I am exploring using soluble metal salts on low-fired porcelain clay, a project I began two years ago and am just now achieving the effects I desire.  All of my work is hand coiled, then carefully burnished to a smooth finish.  I bisque fire the clay at earthenware temperatures, paint them with water soluble metals – iron, nickel, cobalt and other salts, and fire again at low temperatures.

    Ceramics Now Magazine: Where do you get your inspiration for your pieces and what motivates you?

    I seek to create work that evokes a sense of wonder and mystery, forms that beckon to be held and admired.  I delight in closely observing and then interpreting natural objects and events – weathered boulders on a mountain slope, wind ripples on a gray blue sea, complex designs on a delicate bird egg – their rhythms, patterns and forces have greatly inspired my work.  I am an avid traveler and hiker.  During my adventures I have discovered the magnificent pottery of ancient cultures in the American Southwest, South America, and Asia, which speak to me in very profound ways.   

    In what techniques do you usually work and what materials do you use? Do you find working with soluble salts hard?

    I have been experimenting with soluble metal salts for the past two years, a collaboration with my husband, Mark Goudy, which draws on the inspirational work of the master of soluble metals, Arne Åse. Through trial and error, I have developed my own techniques for applying these almost transparent, highly sensitive “watercolors.” The chemicals are toxic and care must be taken while working with them, so my experiences working with photography chemicals and in a scientific laboratory have been extremely helpful. Although metal salts are challenging to work with, I love the sense of anticipation as I wait for a kiln load to finish firing, the joy of seeing their almost magical effects. Some results are disappointing, but I enjoy challenges. Because working with metal salts requires continual testing, inventing and learning, I am certain this project will keep me engaged for quite a long while.

    Le decor est plante, Ceramics in the spotlight - Decorative ceramics exhibition, Bernardaud Foundation, Limoges

    Le décor est planté… Ceramics in the spotlight, Bernardaud Foundation, Limoges, France

    June 24 - October 24, 2011

    The Fondation Bernardaud presents an exhibition devoted to decorative art. American for the most part, several artists will be making their debut in France. Some have already earned an international reputation and many are creating works especially for the occasion. This exhibition presents artists who make use of ceramics to create decorative art. Today, all artists – and not just ceramic artists – are free to use ceramics to express their art. In very different registers, each artist offers a different take on decorative art. Some set out deliberately to subvert everyday objects, others exalt them in the purest trompe-l’oeil tradition. Some conduct a reflection focused on architectural or decorative aspects, others parody the canons of classical sculpture. The actors are ready and the stage is set – let the play begin!
