  • Graduate ceramics student crafts sculptures for MFA group show
    The body is evoked Osborne likens his work to that of artists Jean Hans Arp and Henry Moore Critics often point the similarities out to him and accuse Osborne of simply copying their work No Osborne said It s just similar The bottoms of the two pieces on his desk are wrapped in plastic in an attempt to keep them moist He unwraps the plastic and sprays the clay with water Right now the problem I m having with this piece is the bottom getting too dry before the rest of it because I m going to have to go back in and start smoothing it out again Osborne said The successful completion of Osborne s work is all about timing Because each piece is so top heavy it is important before he adds additional clay that it is dry enough it won t snap under the weight but not so dry he can t make changes Each of these pieces will take him about four days to complete He works on two at a time so that he isn t wasting time as one dries When Osborne isn t in the ceramics lab he is working in the KSU art gallery or teaching Ceramics I But this semester teaching has fallen to the wayside as he s focused on preparing for the show Leading up to the show Osborne meets with Farnsworth to discuss how he plans to present his pieces They discuss not only finishes for each piece but also placement of the forms once he gets them to the gallery How close should the pieces sit How will the placement affect the feeling of the works Should each piece have it s own pedestal or should all of them sit on one shelf Farnsworth said Osborne is reserved and quiet but also thoughtful She said his strengths are tenacity and excellent craftsmanship And a vocabulary that is unique to him a language if you will that he has created through his work Farnsworth said A language of beauty and flowing biomorphic form Two weeks before the opening of his show Osborne has moved his work to the back room of the ceramics lab He has more space than in his nook and as he works a ceramics class listens to music and chats behind him Osborne is working on two more large pieces As he smooths the clay on one of them he decides he needs to add a bulbous shape to the top of it He likes to add elements that make each piece more dynamic and accentuate the form he has created He draws an outline on the piece where he wants to dome to go cuts an air hole and then begins kneading clay to get the air bubbles out He makes a coil and builds more coils on top of it He smooths the inside of the dome as he does this quickly turning the beehive shape and adding more and more clay
