Two questions from Polly Anderson to Theo McGaw on the site contemporarysouthafricanart.blogspot.com.au

Why do you sculpt?

I just do. It comes out of me, through my hands. I suppose if I think about it I could say I like being in the presence of solid form. It has a grounding effect. My hands like making. And I like moving while I work. I like bending and reaching and hammering and lifting and being on my feet all day. There’s a lot of movement needed to bring about the stillness of a piece of sculpture.

Creating form for me is an organic process. I strive to evoke feeling. If it does not express feeling, any art form, music, painting, writing, sculpture, to me is nothing. I don’t want you to think about my sculpture. It’s a gut reaction I want. You like it or you don’t like it. If you like it, it’s a good piece. If you don’t like it, it isn’t. It’s simple. You don’t need a lot of yammer about a piece. After all, there it is, in front of you. It is what it is.
I see pieces in bronze and stone and wood and steel.

Which is your favourite medium?
My favourite medium is the one I’m working on at that moment. Each medium is right for a certain mood-of-work, a certain feel, a certain tempo. Clay is right for fast, fiery work. Stone, on the other hand, is right for a slow, ruminative approach; shall I make this a little more concave? Shall I make that a little more convex? With steel you work everything out – you calculate and cut and fit. Wood – you fall in love with the sensuousness of colour and grain and the feeling of longness – the tree wants longness. Squatness belongs to stone.

    Beautiful works! Great collection. As I acquired an unusual RAKU piece today I was searching for more information on the subject and found these to be beautiful examples.

    Personally loved the Kenya-Earthenware-Clay-Scu, as it reminded me of my fiancée who died in an accident two days after our engagement.

    Una bellissima raccolta di modelli, stili estetici ed artisti impegnati nella realizzazione di Ceramiche d’Arte. Tra i maestri scultori e ceramisti italiani, la scelta di presentare ceramiche di Guido Cacciapuoti (ceramiche Cacciapuoti-Milano) e di Helen Konig Scavini (ceramiche LENCI, mette in evidenza la vostra attenzione alla cultura ceramica italiana del ‘900. Personalmente come responsabile dell’Archivio Storico delle Ceramiche Cacciapuoti Milano-Italy ho appena pubblicato il testo “Cacciapuoti: ceramiche da collezione 1913-1953) che è stato presentato a Milano 2015.
    Ottimo lavoro per avvicinare i giovani alla Ceramica, come sintesi di Arte, Bellezza e Creatività.
