Clara Hoag at Las Manos Gallery
Hoag makes people. With sawdust, food and other materials wedged into her clay. This process connects to how she feels about the human condition. What people are composed of and how they compose the world around them.
Her process combines earthenware and porcelain that is attached with epoxy after the final firing. The porcelain structures enveloping the sculpture are both architectural and organic. The process of constructing and destructing the figure lends to Hoag's idea that growth and change are an integral part of life.
