Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Alberta Rests on it's Laurels", porcelaineous stoneware by Krista Gowland
Gowland says of her process: "My inspiration comes from the thought that while the province is made up of various features and components, it seems to rely on oil for support. Interesting to me is the combining of various components of the clay process, throwing, carving, handbuilding, and moldmaking (sprigs) to get the finished product."

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!
