Arts Council of Lake Oswego & The Wetlands Conservancy
Earth, Glaze and Fire
A Ceramics Exhibition
May 5 – June 10
The exhibit offers a range of exciting examples in sculptural and functional clay work, focusing on different finishing methods, including electric and wood firing, oxidation, soda firing, and how each of these methods yield a different result. Viewers will be taken through the process from raw clay to finished product, and how changing a variable can produce wildly different results. The same clay and glazing coupled with different firing temperatures or techniques can make pieces look completely unrelated. The contrasts give the viewer greater insight into the dynamics of the process, as well as a chance for the maker to refine what they like best in the ceramic spectrum.
Exhibition artists Ha Austin, Melanie Bjorge, Jean Teitelman, and Jenny Watson bring their hand-crafted techniques working with clay, glaze and firing to this multi-faceted exhibition. Each has a different style which brings a unique display of texture, color, and tactile experience. Part of the exhibition will incorporate an educational component outlining the different ceramic processes, plus artist lectures, panel presentations, children’s activities, artist demos, and workshops.
510 Museum & ARTspace hours: Tuesday – Friday, 11 am – 4 pm, and Saturday, 10 am – 2 pm
