Max Dingle Artist
In 2013 I built a new ceramic studio with the intention of combining ceramic forms with welded steel. Sculptures from two materials that are affected by very high temperatures. Clay is pliable and easy to work into shape at normal everyday temperatures but becomes solid after being fired at very high temperatures in a kiln. Steel is the opposite, very solid and rigid at everyday temperatures but can be made very pliable when taken to very high temperatures. I felt that these two "children of the flame" may work well together.
The first of my experiments "Gloria in excelsis Deo", also displayed in the 'Missa Artistica' Gallery.
I started making ceramics in 1970 and examples of these are in the ceramic gallery (see button below), unfortunately the photographs, especially from the 70's, are not all that good, but then some of the early work is probably not that good either.
