Joanna Poag Ceramic Flourish II Sculptures, 2015



Contemporary American ceramic artist Joanna Poag's Flourish II sculptures are hand built and glazed white to give them a lightness and more attention to shadow. Flourish II looks at the growth and development of a system both healthy and beautiful. This piece is a two-fold exploration into the elegance of calligraphic flourishes and the growth and blossoming of something new and wonderful. The pairs of Flourish II sculptures are being offered as a collection but can be purchased separately for $3,500 each (4 pairs available). All works are accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity from Joanna Poag and/or signed by the artist. Additional pieces of Joanna Poag ceramic sculpture available through Highland Park, please contact the dealer for more information. Joanna Poag received her MFA from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology and her BS in Studio Art and Psychology from Roberts Wesleyan College. She currently resides in the Rochester, NY area. Artist Statement: “My work explores the homeostasis of a system, and the resulting equilibrium from multiple parts self-regulating to form a whole. The multiple components of each piece make up a unified whole, creating a glimpse into a moving, healthy cross-section—a living, open system. The time and process involved in the creation of each piece is a meditation that is reflected in my work; there is an organic, human quality clearly visible in the fingerprinted surfacing of each piece. The renewing of life and growth in even the smallest of structures is refreshing to me and I hope my work encourages my viewers to explore the intricacies of the world in a fresh way. I continually seek to create a glimpse of the elegance of structure and order that I find so captivating. My process begins in on paper. After careful research and preparation (of systems spanning string theory, calligraphic flourishes, plant life, music and math), I transfer my designs to Adobe Illustrator and print them, using each printed line as a “floor plan” on which to build my numbered clay components. These components are displayed together as one system or grouping of components. As the year progresses, I hope to continue making large-scale installation work as well as explorations in clay that physically spiral through space. I seek to push the boundaries of the material in ways that I have not discovered yet—finding multiple paths to investigate the structural intricacies that each existing system holds.”.
