|Tobin - Explodes|
An exhibit of works by Steve Tobin, a sculptor best known for his bronze casts of tree roots, is showing pots made of clay and glass. Tobin makes his pots by inserting fireworks and pigments inside rectangles or layers of slabs of damp clay and exploding them, then firing them with glass. The resulting shapes look like pots with the interiors of volcanic craters, the fireworks coloring the insides. The glass at the bottom of each pot resembles a lake or pool of melted sugar. The smallest of these pots are arranged on the walls in grids, installation-style, which makes it easier to see their interiors.
