Jarred is planning on mostly doing throwing… Large platter, teapot, large square bowl and some others. Once again, we will be broadcasting this second saturday event LIVE to our YouTube Channel
Jarred’s Artist Statement
My work explores the beauty of mathematics and its’ relationship with the natural world. Math is all around us, from the enormous structure of a galaxy to that of a snowflake. Everywhere we look, math exists; whether we see it or not. My work highlights the universality of math, in appreciation of the complex beauty of mathematics in the natural world.
I am interested in equations, sequencing and geometric forms ranging in influence from the Pythagorean Theorem to fractals and Chaos Theory. In the last 50 years, Chaos Theory and fractal geometry has shed light on what was otherwise seemingly random events and structures in nature. My work aims to bring these mathematical relationships to life. This is highlighted by the use of the golden section and other mathematical concepts hidden within my work. I use techniques, ranging from the potter’s wheel to slip casting to construct these “monuments to math”. The numerous technical challenges push my skills as a ceramic artist and quench my thirst for mastering the material.
I truly believe that math is the universal language of which, all things are written. Galileo Galilei once wrote, “The universe is written in the language of mathematics, and its characters are triangles, circles and other geometric figures.” By exploring this language of the universe, I hope that viewers gain further appreciation of the mathematical world around us
