From Bronx to Byram chronicles the six rivers I crossed each day on the way to my residency at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY. Each pipe follows the path of the actual river. I built the pipes out of clay I collected from the sink traps and then applied waste glaze as a varnish. Each piece was hung with plumber’s hardware.
By filling the porcelain buckets with the polluted water from each river and sitting them atop a pile of riverbed dirt, I attempted to create a hybrid object of high and low materials. Underneath each bucket is a tap light that illuminates the water through the translucent porcelain.
