My Sunshine

April 28 @ 11:00 am - June 30 @ 6:00 pm

Fire On artists explore light, optimism and human joy. Along with Spring sunshine comes renewal.

The gallery offers uplifting sculptural works, plant-forward eco-prints and planters. Earthy, rustic woodifired pottery show abstract splashes of color while stoneware swirls and drips with luminous glazing and intricate detailing. Chinese brushpainted work is graced with bamboo, blossoms and bunnies.

Sparkling crystalline glazes dot cups, vases and plates. See the prism of kilnformed glass in trays, platters and sculptural keepsakes. Interplay between light and dark is embodied in raku, pitfired and marbleized surfaces.

Walls become welcoming with tributes to flora and fauna, terrain-centric wall tiles and vegetal imprints.

‘My Sunshine’ runs through June 30th. Visit us 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the ground floor of the Torpedo Factory in Studio 22 and bring home an original from potters Brian Grow @b.d.grow Scott Kaye @scottkayepottery Bikki Stricker @cerambik Elke Seefeldt @rayelke Tracie Griffith Tso @traciegriffithtso and kilnformed glass artist Sandi Martina @sandimartina_glass
