It’s no surprise that it’s usually like herding cats to get a group of artists organized. We all seem to march to the beat of our own drums — and have our own ideas about how/when/why we’ll get work done. Amazingly, that hasn’t been the case this time. Working with Brenda and Lindsay has been great. We all had our dates figured out and written in our calendars … everything was delivered on time, no fuss, no muss. What a treat! You can tell we’ve done this once or twice before (Ha!).
And, you should see the work! It is amazing. Brenda & Lindsay have outdone themselves. Made me want to take mine back home! I hope we all get a chance to actually talk about the work at some point. Maybe if enough people are interested we should do an artist’s talk after the opening? My pieces don’t look spectacular (to me), but the processes that went into making them are interesting … and I’m sure they are going to lead to other adventures in clay.
The show is called “Three Degrees of Separation”, and when you look at the work you will wonder how a medium like clay could have been used so differently by three different ceramists (clay artists) …but it has really come together. There’s a mix of bright bold color and soft muted tones, all leading you from one piece to the next. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!
I’m heading to Brent’s wedding (my son), but I’ll be at the Opening next Saturday with bells on!
See you soon,
