“The image repeated in the JDZ Tiles was created by having my three-dimensional porcelain tree-forms photographed in the round, each peripheral image stitched together and the whole stretched flat, resulting in an espaliered landscape of sorts. I am grateful for the collaboration, ingenuity, and skill of Michael Zajac in producing these non-orthogonal images of my porcelain trees. The image seen in the JDZ Tile series represents one section of one of my stacked porcelain tree forms. The tiles have been described as the result of “a two-dimensional, 360-degree view of a Nickel sculpture made using a photographic process originally developed to document the scenes and texts painted on pre-Columbian Maya vases. It skillfully complicates our physical and historical relationships to ceramic vessels.”
