Alberta in a Box: Wide Open

"Tulip" and "Lucy", Plainsman 332 and naked raku by Sharon Aaltonen
Aaltonen describes her process: "I have enjoyed throwing functional pottery for many years, but have punctuated that with various firing styles from time to time. I have been seduced by the wonderful surface of naked raku and really enjoy getting together with a couple of friends to discover new techniques and treasures."

These pieces are 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!
