"They are of earth, and of fire; and art." Jay Strommen, best known for his gallery work and tea ceremony cups, has begun doing bonsai pots.  For a show in 2000, Strommen noted that ceramics is akin to alchemy: a very working, tactile exploration of compounds, materials; and often uncertain results. In ceramics, the artist works with the essences thought by the alchemists to be fundamental: Earth and Air, Fire and Water. In his works, Earth and Fire forge their own marks of identity. The artist transmutes the elementals into an art of decay, persistence and renewal.
