Janet Neuwalder’s fascinating work is formed using natural and industrial raw materials (branches, leaves, straw, fibers, papers) that act as armatures for clay. The process of coating, dipping, layering and firing acts as an accelerated aging and evolution process that petrifies the form and produces a “contemporary fossil.” When this marriage of process, form and fire unite, the work is encoded with the past and present, and is suggestive of its potential future.
