Perhaps more than any other medium sculpture requires the unique marriage of material and process. Wood and stone are carved, subtracting mass while other materials are combined as in welded steel or assembled found objects.
'Fluid Reformations' refers to processes borrowed from craftsmen or women working with forged metal, blown glass or wheel thrown ceramic. "Fluid Reformations: Smith, Gaffer, Potter" offers a cross section of the work of contemporary sculptors working in these traditional mediums.
