"Gregory Miller, born 1969, in Kansas, raised in Oklahoma and a resident of Dallas since 2001. From an early age he was introduced to the world of the encyclopedia. This exposure to art, design and history resonated with him. His work is meant to be experienced on a macro and micro level. Observe the complete collection then come closer and examine each piece. Look for the subtle variations in the repeated forms. As a keen observer of the natural and man made world, textures and variations in a repeated theme, intrigue me. In many of my works, you will see there are pieces that follow a pattern. The element of the unknown is the firing itself. Many factors have an influence on the finished piece. The placement, atmosphere within the kiln and other factors determine the finished piece. The controlled and the uncontrollable, combined make up this installation.
