paper + clay
paper + clay is the meeting of two mediums: printmaking by Becky Street and ceramics by David Traylor. Resulting from a yearlong collaboration in 2022, a series of clay vessels collaged with colorful monoprints was created.
As with any great collaboration, the whole becomes greater than the sum of the parts. Both artists have a strong interest in the form and shape of vessels either as a subject of prints or in the making of ceramic bottles and containers. The project started with the David making the first ceramic vessels based on drawings by Becky. This gave Becky a “canvas” to begin composition and application of collages. Based on a continuing dialog, new forms and refinements were made resulting in the collaged, ceramic vessels.
