"This land amazes me; despite a harsh climate and severe drought the landscape is filled with weird and wonderful growing things. My sculptural forms are a reflection on the unusual seeds and structures that endure and survive in this landscape. The sculptural plants I build are about resilience, persistence, toughness, durability, tenacity and adaptability."
Amanda Jaffe is a professor emeritus at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, where she taught ceramics from 1985 to 2011. During her tenure her work focused almost exclusively on ceramic tile paintings and murals, but in 2008 she returned to a sculptural format with the body of work, Turbulent Ocean/Serene places.
"I adore texture and pattern, wheathered metal/brick, antiquated buttons and wax seals. I am especially drawn to the subjects of architecture, fish, and vintage automobiles. I also draw inspiration from my time spent at home in New Mexico and the Southern San Juan mountains of Colorado. Most importantly, I am interested in integrating these elements, inspirations, subjects, and surface into my work using various media and techniques.
"Preferring to make functional objects (pottery, t-shirts, calendars, prints), Konsuela hopes people will use, love, and enjoy them everyday. She mostly hopes her work will bring joy and a warm smile to the user; and always the warm, loving, and fun memories of family and friends who have passed on the next phase in the circle of life and death."
