Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Not Performing Up to Full Potential", facetted stoneware by Susan Thorpe
Thorpe says: "I use the clay to imitate the earth from which it came. I work from a solid block of clay, struggling to spontaneously remove each textured facet; to appreciate what has been left behind and to resist corrective altering."

This piece is part of Alberta In a Box: Wide Open, a juried travelling exhibition of whimsical and elegant clay work by 39 members of the Alberta Potters Association. The show runs until April 14 with a closure on April 6 & 7 for Easter. The Visual Arts Alberta Gallery is open Wed-Fri 10-4 and Sat 12-4 pm. Drop by for a visit!
