The focus of Vicki Grant’s work, be it architecture or art, has been towards creating visual experiences that engage the viewer both intellectually and emotionally. “I have always felt that the most amazing forms, structure, color and textures are found within nature and that exposure to these elements has been my inspiration and teacher.” Sketching is the inception of the thought; it brings an idea to a page that then allows Vicki to move forward to transform the clay to reflect the original conceptual thought.
Each wall sculpture has been hand formed, carved, colored and embellished with natural items such as wood, glass, stone, metal, shells and pods. After firing, oil pigments are hand applied, layer after layer, until the final patina of rich hues is achieved. The artwork then is mounted on a slate panel.
