Submerge #2  2013 is a handmade ceramic tile exploring submergence and emergence. 


The work is the result of an embodied process, allowing expressive behaviour to drive and create the final work. As such Submerge #2 is very much about being there.


There is an initial layer of manganese di-oxide in areas, which creates much of the textured surface of the work, with additional glazes painted and poured on.


This repeated layering process gives Submerge #2 its illusion of depth and surface detail.


The title of the work denotes the artists feelings when creating the work, as well as, a visceral world experienced by us all and suggests the personal nature of emotions as an evolved system as part of the social sphere.
