Eric Knoche's simplified cloud forms are full of engaging contrasts. They look almost like illustrations, icons, or diagrams of idealized outlines of clouds. With the centers cut out, allowing the eye to move into and around the form, they reference airiness, but the material acts as a counterweight. The weathered surface on each that results from wood firing adds both a sense of gravity and of exposure to the elements.
