Terra Cotta Ceramic Chain-Link Sculpture by Taylor Kibby

Estimated Production Time6-7 weeks

About

This wall sculpture balances the strength and delicacy of its materiality through the lush draping of seemingly fragile ceramic links. Each link is individually assembled into a vast weaving of ceramic rings that allows the piece to drape, fold, and move gracefully over a space. The rich warm terra cotta had moments of stretching space and bunched shadows that are ripe for exploration. As the artist weaves this pattern, she uses the repetitive action to find a space of meditation and deep contemplation of the space she and the work are both negotiating. The artist and work of art move in a dance of making that continues through installation. A large draw of Kibby's practice is the focus on tactile and Kinetic works of art. As they chain link sculptures move the links make music through their interaction with each other. They seduce the viewer into tactile interaction. Because of the Kinetic nature of each piece the object's size and draping is unique to each installation.

About The Maker

Taylor Kibby

Taylor Kibby

View Profile
Taylor Kibby lives and works in Los Angeles,CA. Coming from a culinary background, Taylor Kibby uses the knowledge and discipline of working with her hands as the foundation of her practice. Aligning with ideas centered on the blurring of lines between craft and fine art, Taylor Kibby makes work centered on experience and awareness. Through rigorous application of technique and the subsequent surrender to an unravelling of structure, she seeks to explore ideas of narrative in connection with the way objects share space and embody identity. The context of her work is deeply influenced by tactile making, thinking, and learning. In 2018 she received her Master of Fine Art in Applied Craft and Design from a joint program between Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland, OR. Deeply influenced by the sun drenched vistas of her Southern California childhood, Taylor's work is a blend of high style, the sensual, and the slightly strange. Inspired by traditional chainmail construction and tapestry, Kibby works by creating a flexible system and then subjecting the sculpture to both predictable and unpredictable change. This experimentation creates unique movement and one-of-a kind objects.
