Gift of the artist
In Figure #3, a slab-built stoneware sculpture, David Dyche added pieces around the perimeter of a cylinder, creating a stratification of folded and twisted layers of ceramic covered on the surface by large, flat rectangular sections. A sculpted face with closed eyes, with some parts intentionally damaged, emerges from the center of this work, suggesting a person imprisoned inside a contorted body of clay, or a statue found under ancient ruins.
Dyche was born in 1955 and studied at the University of Iowa, where he earned an MFA degree. He obtained a Fulbright fellowship for carrying on his research in Korea. From 1989 to 1992 he was the ceramics studio coordinator at Utah State University in the department of art and design.
