Chambers creates each concentrically layered ceramic piece as he sculpts the clay, preferring to work without the constraints or the direction of a sketch. Each “layer” is an individual section thrown on a potter’s wheel, sanded and polished at different stages to maintain their smooth surfaces. The artist then stratifies selected layers to create a solid form that evokes the movement of its formation as it reveals its stratum. Chambers achieves unique colors by adding oxides and stains directly to the clay before each layer is thrown. Both minimalist and complex, the resulting pieces are reminiscent of natural forms under microscope lenses.
