Maker/Collector Statement

Traffic in the Sky was a part of Adam Landman’s BFA thesis work and is a prized piece in our personal collection.

Adam’s use of imagery and color changed my work dramatically.

There is a tendency with wood firing to focus on form only and to rely entirely on the kiln to take care of the surface. Adam’s uninhibited way of decoration pushed me in a direction to take ownership of the surface of my forms, to bring together my interest in narrative and illustration with the process of wood firing. Summer Dreams, from a recent firing, illustrates this influence.
