Language Arts

Artist Michael Terra is known as "the mud poet" for the way he combines a love of words with the crafting of clay. These playful, interactive sculptures allow you to play along in shaping the meaning of the work. Mounted on the front of a textured ceramic plaque are four disks, each threaded on a wire. Each disks carry a single word on both faces, and can be flipped over or spun to change the word displayed, creating a shifting, fragmented poetry. The background surface of both the orange "Salamander" and cooling "Blue" has been imprinted with panels of geometric texture. Both pieces display a spirit of earthy, childlike spontaneity in their craftsmanship, combined with a sense of wistfulness and longing in their words. Handmade in Paducah, Kentucky.

"As I do larger works, I would use these small faces as 'sketches' and they would pile up in a basket in the studio... a gallery owner, in the studio one day to pick up a larger piece, spotted the basket and bought the whole lot... they were gone from the gallery in a month and they became their own event.
