Tim Roda: wILD cLAY, Candela Gallery, Richmond, Virginia.

wILD cLAY is an exhibition of artworks by Tim Roda, exploring clay and photography as artistic mediums connected by uncharacteristic utility. The works in this exhibition embrace the functional history of clay as a vessel, making photography and material a means of exploratory documentation. The vessels in wILD cLAY function as clay cameras, while also existing as fragile, earthen material and crudely created domestic ecosystems. The resulting pinhole cameras and large scale photographs present questions about freedom and responsibility, raised by curiosity and ingenuity, with regard to our constructed and natural environments. 

This body of work consists of ceramic cameras that were used to photograph constructed scenes.
The work pushes the boundaries of functional ceramics and celebrates the analog approach.
