Marvin Blackmore- Ceramics

Marvin Blackmore is known for covering the surface of his vessels with multiple layers of colored slips. He then etches and carves into the surface and interior of the vessels exposing selected layers of different colored slips, a process also known as sgraffito (the application of contrasting color slip to an unglazed clay vessel and scratching or incising through layers to create pattern or design). Blackmore creates an allover repeated sequence of intricate geometric patterns with motifs drawn from the natural world and traditional Native American imagery.Marvin

Blackmore’s mission is “To create the most complex intricate pottery the world has ever seen.”

Jessica Wright- Medium- Acrylic painting-

Through the technique of gestural abstraction, Jessica Wright invites us into a world of enchantment: a world of forested landscapes that are sometimes burning and bright and other times shrouded in mist. Self-taught, Jess has been painting since the age 12. About four years ago she abandoned the brush—after more than 25 years of work—and hit upon a “throwing” technique that employs acrylics, chopsticks and, of late, her own hands. Her paintings come to life with color and texture—and an immediacy that produces an almost child-like state of wonder and awe in the viewer.

A classic car, the romance of days gone by and the scent of fresh paint on a well-worn brush – that’s the essence of life.
