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.
