Remembering When: October 2013

Jeff Forster Poster: October, 2013

If the work is interesting enough, it should make the poster.  I wanted to present the title as if it were projected onto the piece.  The slight distortion to the type is thanks to a displacement map.

I like adding quotes from the artist statement.  It adds a personal touch.  A hint to the viewer. A clue.  Something to say… “hey! You!  You may relate to this.  Come and see the rest of my work.”

I remember this show. The pieces were heavy.  Special custom mounts were made for the pieces to hang on the wall.  If they had fallen, the marble beneath would have felt it.

I have always been attached to atmospheric firing, but sadly as much as I want to build a soda/salt kiln in my backyard, the city of Fort Worth has codes.  I’ll have to purchase some land out in the country somewhere.  Wish. Wish.
