Candice Methe



My work is a soliloquy of a quiet and simple life. It is my way to connect with those who have a deep relationship with the land, where the simplest of resources are universal and celebrated. I want my work to feel as though it is specific to place and time and the viewer/participant has the opportunity to undo the many superficial layers that have been placed upon them and recognize what is essential.
When the work is made, I build up each piece by hand and there is a dialog, a story between maker and material that can be read on the skin on the pot. I live in the arid and dusty South West and the beauty of the high desert inspires the colors that I use. While the shapes that are cut into the work may seem geometric and arbitrary, they are taken from the natural and organic flora of the high desert landscape.
