Marcia Wolfson Ray

Marcia Wolfson Ray's fantastic sculptures exploring line, space and volume, and remind us that thoroughly exploring different materials and their qualities and weaknesses has to be a key element in good design.

"After collecting the materials- bamboo, hibiscus, dog fennel, corn, reeds, grasses, and various other plants, they may sit in my studio for years and its during this time I can see what happens to them. Some of the materials petrify and become stronger while others disintegrate, turning to dust. This gives me a hint of what I can build with them. The idea my imagination starts with may not mesh with the physical reality of the material I'm using, so I have to allow for a certain degree of improvisation, that lets the work evolve and dictate its own form."
