fullsizeoutput_1408My family visited San Francisco, California this past August. We toured Monterey and Carmel, viewed Big Sur and then traveled north to Sausalito and into wine country before heading into the foggy city of San Francisco in the summertime. Here’s a look at some of the inspiration for my forms and surface decoration.

“THINK BIG”

“THINK BIG”, a Dedham Square Artist Guild sponsored art exhibit opens with a reception at the Dedham Community Theatre from 6-8PM on Thursday, November 14th.

Artists across eastern Massachusetts created 14 supersized works of at least 24 inches in different mediums that will be on display from Nov. 14 through January 2 at the Dedham Community Theatre on High Street.

About my piece:
My “BIG” vase was made in porcelain while I was studying art at Skidmore College. It was the last time that I had the opportunity to fire my work in a large reduction kiln. This type of firing uses gas and that is what produces these beautiful copper reds. The surface decoration feels very holiday to me with its reds and greens. I imagine this vase filled with an arrangement of red roses and white lilies, holly with tiny red berries, pine and perhaps ivy for a glorious centerpiece.

It’s functional pottery created to bring beauty to everyday life.

To purchase this one of a kind wheel thrown ceramic vase, please visit the Dedham Square Artist Guild gallery for details or stop by the reception this Thursday.

This beautiful photograph of my vase was taken by Kerry Hawkins. Please visit her website to see the wonderful images she captures with her camera.
