Neoplastic Landscapes is a series of smoke fired ceramic wall reliefs – a collaborative experimental effort by Soyong and Michael Partington in building ultra-thin modern clay structures and then firing them within the extreme heating conditions of the ancient pit firing process.
Pit (or smoke) fired sculpture is created using natural materials such as leaves, twigs, and wood shavings, that are set on fire in a closed container and allowed to smolder for up to 48 hours. The smoke creates variations of organic shapes and colors on the surface.
