Jeffery A Kiefer
Cast Iron and Ceramic. 14” x 4” x 4”
My work enters a play between two opposing materials; the hard cold iron being supported by warm wood fired porcelain. Inspired by nature’s resiliency to survive and grow through adversary, the smooth organic ceramics both supporting and ripping apart the strong geometric cast iron. Depth and dimension are enhanced by overlapping materials. A unique shadow play is created on the white surface of the ceramics.
