Void and Reflection, No. 1
Earthenware; ht. 9, wd. 15, dp. 19 in.
Smith's work is remarkable in his technique as well as the gravity based forms. Using earthenware, those most common of clays, Smith refines their surfaces to an elegant smoothness that defies the eye and is sensual to the touch. His play with space within the vessels is unlike any other artist and the use of a metallic leaf accentuates the glowing interiors.
