“This is a quiet exhibit about making pots and clay sculpture– standing in counterpoint to “Posing the Question.”
It is based on a project begun several years ago when I was invited to photograph a group of women potters who had worked together for many years – first at Karamu House and then later at Bratenahl Community Center. They worked in an open space with layers of clay below and floating, flowing, rippling conversation above – fashioning worlds based firmly in experience and in the clay.
This event is free and open to the public. Opening night will feature half-hour viewing sessions from 5-8. That night is January 22nd.
