DANIEL DUFORD’S artistic practice is centered on an enormous tree growing out of a half-buried storage jar. The roots have cracked the walls of the submerged pot and suck up nutrients from deep in mythic and historic earth. Duford uses blunt materials to tell stories. He makes temporary heroic murals, throws pots, draws comics, and builds large-scale, unviable ceramic monuments. The dendritic nature of his practice fans out from American mythology and folklore. Artist, writer, and teacher, Duford is a Visiting Associate Professor of Art at Reed College and a Hallie Ford Fellow.
