Immerse #2 is the result of challenging personal boundaries, both artistically and psychologically.
At its core it focuses on two key notes; the inclusion of white as a colour and a horizontal read slash across the pot to denote a subterranean landscape, exploring liberation through expression. The red slash is there to stimulate as well as unsettle the viewer. It's untidy, slightly ungainly and acts to interrupt the viewing process.
"From an artistic point of view I'm interested in visual disturbance and flaws, as this often leads to a new tecnique or way of seeing something".
A hand coiled vase Immerse #2 took approximately 18 hours to create. With multiple layers of oxides, glazes and stains focusing on glaze interaction, a signature of Ché's expertise.
