Thérèse Lebrun’s Porcelains.

Posted by on Feb 12, 2015 in Adults, Artists, Blog, Ceramic, Etc. | 1 comment

* “Since 2004, Thérèse Lebrun has focused on mastering the potentials of paper-thin porcelain. Lebrun creates shapes, objects that are utterly empty. These are reminiscent of remnants of former living things and—dare we say it—living beings, that evolution must have forgotten to finish. Hers is the forgotten world of the past; fossils, petrified plants, and the leftover plant structures with traces of ancient rhythms, order and disorder. She continues her research using the vestiges of a past world or forms that exist only in her imagination. This is evolution that Darwin never dreamed of. Lebrun gives us fragility, translucence, and boundaries in porcelain that touches all manner of once living...

Aneta Regel’s Ceramics.

* Elizabeth Shriver‘s work is so beautiful and organic. In the artist’s own words: “I work with clay to create an array of graceful, organic forms.  These pieces are made through a variety of hand-building methods such as slab-building, coiling, pinching, and forming with molds. Rarely relying on glaze, I use textures, stains, and colored clay to add visual and tactile interest.  I am drawn toward neutral earth tones, and my work reflects the natural landscape, plant, and undersea life that are my inspiration. The curving lines of nature inherent in my work generate an illusion of movement, giving each piece an almost lifelike quality.  A successful piece is one that...
