Performance collaboration with Summer Zickefoose during a residency at Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, Newcastle, ME in the summer of 2011.

We chose a pathway halfway between the housing and studios, set up two chairs, and began to build clay onto our bodies. The task was complicated by the impromptu decision to start by building onto our hands, making it only possible to build with the other hand. Throughout the performance, we had to work in tandem in order to manipulate the clay. In this way, clay became a means for two people to interact.

This performance was highlighted in the book New Directions in Ceramics: From Spectacle to Trace (2015) by Jo Dahn.
