As I’ve browsed through various artists’ online galleries, I’ve been fascinated with their wall boxes. These are forms that have a hollow area where some “treasure” is stashed. (Look at Novie Trump and Alisdair Neil for an idea of what I mean.)
So, when challenged to develop/improve on a technique, I chose to do wall boxes. Mine are not nearly as detailed as the examples I chose. Anyway, here is work-in-progress. Some of these need to be reglazed and fired again. Some need other embellishments. But, it’s a start.
“Bigger is Better” isn’t always true, especially when it comes to being included in the Texas Artists Coalition Members Small Works Exhibit. Space in the Gallery at Fort Worth Community Arts Center is limited and, by doing a Small Works Exhibit, more artists and works are able to be shown.
I’m thrilled that my piece … “Now You See Me … ” was chosen for this show. From a distance, it looks like a red/white design, created by an underglaze transfer. Up close AND at the right angle, viewers can see a silhouette of a cat. It was hard to photograph this piece so that the cat was partially visible.
The Exhibit runs from March 5th through April 10th at 1300 Gendy Street in Fort Worth, Texas.
