Tim Mitchell

Tim Mitchell's "archimorphic" sculptural works are whimsical and humorous, his intention is to tickle the imagination and engage the senses. He graduated from Cornell University with a degree in architecture and worked as an architect for most of his career. This architectural background is evident in his sculptures. They display architectural proportions and references (ie columns, joists, and roof-like lines). Yet these structure-like forms also have an animal-like quality, brought to life with eyes. These eyes endow each piece with a unique personality and character. His aim is to find forms inclined toward allegory and having the potential for mythological thinking and storytelling.

Each sculpture is completely one-of-a-kind and fired in a wood-fired kiln. This wood-firing produces beautiful and unpredictable glaze effects, with each facet of a sculpture having a unique color palette.
