The exhibit was on display from October 12 through November 3, 2018 in the exhibit gallery of the Hatheway Cultural Center on the Godfrey, Illinois campus of Lewis and Clark Community College.
The Call for Entry
The exhibit was curated from works of current faculty who teach art or art-related subjects at Lewis and Clark Community College.
The Ceramic Art Pieces
These vases are about two feet tall, and have a very attractive surface. While the surface is very smooth, it also shows a random grayish pattern, probably the result of burnishing. The first vase has a base , and that makes this vase more like sculpture.
Craig has produced very nicely shaped vases, as you see in the previous images. This one is shaped like the vase came together through the partial fusion of three vases.
This is an older piece from Angela. About three feet tall abstraction.
These plates are Angela’s new work. About a foot in diameter; striking execution of the plate throwing and the carving and glazing.
The plates were hung on the wall, and the fact that several of these plates were sold proves that I’m not alone thinking that they will make a great wall decoration.
