About Mark Chuck

Artist Statement:

     
I bring fish to the table in a most unusual way, whether as a plate, goblet, or tea pot, making fish fans out of those of who have never really given the creature much thought, but who will never again ignore that passing flicker in the stream.
I am and have been an avid fisherman. In translating my love of fishing and nature into clay (my preferred medium), I find an immense sense of satisfaction and challenge. My current body of work explores the unique characteristics of clay, one of which is the ways that clay can take on the impression of different materials. Using the plaster mold I make from fish that I catch as a tool (like a potters wheel) the fish is free to take on as many shapes I desire . I manipulate the piece by pressing, pulling and playing with the shape; being careful not to disturb the outer texture of the fish skin. The imagery and colors of my work is more about the surface of the fish then the shape of the fish capturing the essence of what a fish actually is . Every fish sculpture I create is individually hand-built and one-of-a-kind.
