Dana Lazarus-Cass

Using a variety of clays and techniques that include throwing, extruding and slip-casting, I create miniature tableaux in clay.   The thrown elements act as a stage or landscape setting for an unfolding drama, which allows the viewer to engage with the work and to develop their own narratives. Through the addition of mixed media I highlight psychological “curiosities” and aim to infuse a sense of the surreal and fantastic.

Irony, despair, wit and nuances of the human condition are what I hope to communicate through my work.  I seek inspiration from the media, contemporary issues and personal experience to investigate alienation in an increasingly fragmented world.
