Red Plane - Ted Vogel, detail

Ted Vogel has always been a collector of objects, and a maker of spare parts. In his work these “parts” are made of clay, kiln cast glass, digital images and other mixed media elements. His interest in working with clay, glass, cast iron, the photographic image and other materials is in what each material gives to the work: light, color, transparency, depth, strength, weight, illusion, fragility, etc.

Red Plane - Ted Vogel

Reflecting the traditions of ceramic and glass figurines and the kitsch ceramics of the 1930s,‘40s & ‘50s, Vogel’s work explores ideas of story telling and allegory and references our inseparable relationship to the natural world, the body, humanness and our complex and precarious interactions with humankind. These stories are derived from sources of mythology of our vast history and family tales that are passed down from generation to generation, and from the so-called “true stories” of our time, often created by public myth.
