A selection of Barbara Nanning's works at Pierre Marie Giraud Gallery

Barbara Nanning, Untitled, 2014, glass, blue gold, 18 x 30 x 22 cm © Barbara Nanning and Pierre Marie Giraud Gallery. Evolution, a term for mapping out a piece of artistic history in a Darwinian manner. But not in a rigid way, just as nature does not let itself be governed by systematic laws that are all too strict. The oeuvre of Barbara Nanning is a continuum of objects that can be classified into groups, as if species and families. Her new objects follow from the preceding ones. Ideas often continue...

These techniques are all aspects of the forging process & forging is the most basic way to define our method of creation.

Simon Van der Ven Ceramics at the 38th Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

Simon Van der Ven, Lincolnville, ME; ceramics. Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. So often, people tell me,”I just want to touch your work.” I love hearing that. I form, carve, polish, and glaze to invite physical interaction. I am intrigued by pattern and look for those that I can understand phenomenologically rather than specifically. I know I have it right, when one person says, “That reminds me of coral,” another says, “lacy stinkhorn”, and another says, “blood vessels.” I make art as a way to understand the world I live...

Lulu Fichter ceramics at the 38th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

Lulu Fichter, Peterborough, NH; ceramic. Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. 'I have found that living and working in the space between clay’s opposites to be a challenge that continues to motivate me. Clay is cool and moist yet requires the fiery heat of the kiln. It's soft and malleable yet rigid and brittle. Clay is inert and inorganic, a mixture of silicas and aluminas, yet it is also in some ways alive and unpredictable. Whether throwing, pinching, slicing, piercing or embossing, the sensual feel of the porcelain enhances... [Lire la suite]
