Lindsey Dezman makes abstract sculptural ceramic forms using nontraditional approach to making. Her focus is on systematically exploring different types of clay and their use. Sometimes her scientific approach is more literal, in the case of Basin Series Dezman studied different clay bodies and their many reactions to different firing temperatures, and displayed them in groups illustrating different effects of the firing temperatures: colors and sheen, cracking, melting and even boiling.

Dezman is influenced by a materials ability to reflect time and life. In one shelf installation, Dust Plates, the surface of shallow porcelain wheel thrown open vessel forms catalog and document dust swept from the floors of her home. Each plate is fired with a week’s worth of dust sweepings placed on its surface creating a shadow or ‘burnout’ effect. The plates remain unglazed, while the mark on the underside of each plate document the date that the dust was collected and cataloged. In another project Dezman uses shards from the past, “successful” and “unsuccessful” ceramic works. The shards are comingled and reassembles to create a 3D mosaic vessel. Epoxy and grout is used in this process.
