San Fransisco based artist Ron Nagle makes small scale ceramic works that seem to me like little otherworldly landscapes or sci-fi sets. Nagle often refers to his works as ‘visual jokes’ and gives the work humorous titles (although he says the title has no relation to understanding the content of the work). When I see Nagle’s sculptures, I think I can see that he is having fun, although ceramics involves lots of skill, concentration and some frustration, I see his work as playing with form, texture and words. I like how he has stuck to almost the same scale and format and see how much he can take the form into other directions.
