Katy Fischer. I met her at the Vermont Studio Center this June. Her work is alphabets, syntax, air, light, color, small fields. She had a table full of ceramic fragments. In the hottest days, at the beginning of July, the kiln was running all the time. She kept her red door open. You could walk by and see her [letters/flags/fields/objects/—] there, repeating themselves and configuring themselves. I can’t deny that something about the way I played with a dollhouse as a child is part of what drew m to Katie’s work: my best toys were the ones I made myself, to approximate real things, while always retaining the offness and madeness of the toy made by the child who plays with it. So inspiring to get to talk with Katie about fragmentation and accumulation and big projects made of small objects.
