Ink and Clay 38, 2012

I'm happy and excited to announce my piece "Colony" has been accepted into this year's Ink and Clay 38 exhibition at the Kellogg Art Gallery at the Cal Poly Pomona campus.

Exhibition dates:
Thursday, March 15 to Friday, April 27, 2012

Saturday, March 24, 2012 from 5:00PM to 7:00PM. Light refreshments and drinks are served. Admission is free.

This piece, composing of three separate units or modules can be arranged in different configurations, each giving a different feel to the piece.

In 2011, I did quite bit of R&D with paper clay and steel wire mesh. This was one of several completed works in this series. The clay is Southern Ice Porcelain paper clay over steel mesh (also called chicken wire), and fired to Cone 06. I didn't use any glaze since I greatly enjoy the brilliant whiteness of the porcelain paper clay. A clear sealant was used to protect the surface of the bisqued work. In this arrangement, the piece is 38" W x 16"D x 13"H.

This piece received the 2nd prize in the City of Brea "Made in California" All Media 2011 show. I enjoyed making the piece and was glad it was so well received.

More info about the Ink and Clay 38 show as it becomes available. Stay tuned ...

Hello Lori,
Thanks! Glad you are enjoying the piece. It looks really different under gallery lights - much better in person.
