Embellished Surfaces

February 5 @ 11:00 am - February 28 @ 5:30 pm

A smorgasbord of surfaces abound in this show. Scope artists might emboss curlicue designs onto the surface of a slab before building a form while others scratch into the leatherhard surface to create linear details. Glazes are formulated to create crystals while others are layered to create depth. Slip trailing raises from the surface and underglaze painting might tell a story. Featuring the Ceramic Guild.
