Representing a departure from his past thematic works, the “Spatial Spiral” series demonstrates entirely new levels of accomplishment and execution in ceramics. The series was created with an exclusive, innovative and first of its kind artistic technique that has made this signature series much sought after by collectors.
Boroniec’s “Spatial Spiral” series is an adventure in three dimensions and expands the concept of ceramics beyond traditional boundaries with very modern execution and beautiful lines that opens the work up for collectors to explore and share. This series has unlimited potential with each piece representing its own fore into this new world of ceramic interpretation.
Design, execution, and finishing of each spiral piece represents a singularly unique adventure as Boroniec takes his creative concepts to the wheel where he crafts and works with clay in a completely new way. He then painstakingly employs a special firing technique, as each work is fired individually in a kiln that is custom made to accommodate the spiral designs. He completes each masterpiece with creative combinations of proprietary glazes and finishes that he has formulated during extensive processes of exploration and experimentation.
