Willi Singleton states, "Holding Space is a term that can have widely varying meanings. I use the term Holding Space as a way of considering how clay vessels "hold space" in very concrete ways, while also performing metaphorically as a way of conveying attachment to place, since my pots are essentially expressions of my place. My clay is my local mountain (Hawk Mountain), mixed with remnants of a regional waterway (the Susquehanna river delta). My glazes are my backyard (bamboo, forest wood, and clay from the creek) and surrounding fields (corn), plus a few things from the ceramic supply store. This place has given birth to these clay artifacts that embody my three decade dialogue with my Kempton surroundings.
My pots will be accompanied by two series of new prints. One series depicts some of the processes by which these pots come into being. This is my attempt to show that the richness of the product results from the beauty of the process. I will also be showing prints made during a residency at the Herekeke Art Center, near Taos, of the mountains and rivers in that vicinity. These prints are inspired by both the Herekeke surroundings and Gary Snyder. Snyder talks about mountains channeling water just as rivers shape mountains. Similarly, people shape their place just as the place shapes the people, by posing possibilities and imposing parameters we must work in coordination with. Please stop by the gallery to see these prints that support my pots as evidence of this principle of mutual shaping, of potter and place".
