As we increasingly operate through digital interfaces in our daily lives, the role of craft has come to represent an alternative; a preservation of analog process and tradition that seems lacking in a digital world. At the same time, craft media has always been at the forefront of developments in new technology.
The work of Thomas Schmidt represents a spectrum of sculptural objects which attempts to tease apart the amorphous state of ceramics and craft in a post-digital age. From digitally modeled vases to crumpled porcelain tile, Schmidt draws upon both digital fabrication and the hand made to orchestrate and capture a variety of material moments for the viewer to experience and unfold.
