Many people have read the most recent National Geographic issue on Water.  1% of the earth’s water is potable.  Of that 1%, 70% of it goes towards agriculture.  You and I benefit from that growing of course.

Take Me Back – An exploration of water, local clay, and time is in response to many things.  The preciousness of object making.  Making a zero impact on the earth making art.  Corn, as Pollan says “the SUV of plants” and it’s clamor for fertilizers and water.  Corn impacting the humidity of a region during peak growing season.  And ideas and thoughts I have yet to have.

I came to corn and agriculture because of its beauty.  That was 11 years ago.  I realize now that it is 20 lifetimes of inspiration and art to make.
