These are three pieces that I call Liminal Objects. They are all three in the show. Each is made of white stoneware glazed with my re-worked marshmallow glaze. The cake plate/stands are topped with an indoor/outdoor turf. The other strange material here is a yellow tool-dip that I used to cover the tree like appendages...Oh yeah, the foot of each is also dipped in that lovely black tool-dip.
The Mobile Landscape Device #7 is another brand spankin; new piece....it really fits my idea for this group of work... a collision of information encompassing the natural and the faux...absurd machines...and nostalgic, kitsch objects. I am not showing all the work that is in the show simply because number one, I'm lazy, and number two I don't have images of them all...so, if you're in the area..you're just going to have to check it out live and in person. However, I thought I would include in this post a couple mugs that were not going to the show...whatta ya' think? Cool graphics, a lot of color and plenty of bling!
FRankenFlOwer MuG LIVES!
This other mug is a spin-off of the set of Landscape Sketchbook Tumblers that are in the show...So, If you are reading this and are in or around the Pittsburgh area, you are invited to attend the public reception on May 3rd...6-9 pm. Boxheart Gallery, 4523 Liberty Avenue, Bloomfield area.
