Potter and educator
Aaron Anslow will judge the works.
Anslow is an Assistant Professor in the Fine Arts department at
Bethany College in West Virginia.
He received his B.A. in Visual Arts in 2006 at Bethany and
then went on to earn his M.F.A. in Ceramics from West Virginia
University in 2011. During his time at West Virginia University he
focused on both functional and nonfunctional ceramics. He worked in
the production studio and studied ceramics in
China. Throughout Anslow’s
career, he has shown work internationally in China, nationally in
the Strictly Functional juried exhibition, and in print in Clay
Anslow describes his work in his artist’s statement:
I want my work to speak about the immediacy of
clay in the process of construction. Communicating the action and
energy of the forming process, as well as the way that forces such
as gravity and temperature affect my work is my goal. It is
important for me to translate the soft gestural qualities of the
clay and the fluidity of the glaze.
The surfaces and colors I strive for are
reminiscent of brick, granite, and sand stone. I choose to fire my
forms in atmospheric kilns, such as wood and salt, because these
kilns leave evidence of the firing process.
By stacking the kiln in a specific way I am able to channel
the flow of the flame and produce unique patterns on the work.
I am drawn to the physical nature of clay. I
appreciate the process and the work involved in making each
individual piece. The
process of taking a block of clay and manipulating it into a unique
and beautiful object provides the opportunity to constantly explore
new forms and surfaces.
The Independent High School Students art show will open May 14 with an evening reception from 6 – 8 p.m. and will run throughout the month of May. The gallery at Clay Place @ Standard is located at One Walnut Street in Carnegie, PA, and is open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 412.489.5240 or email email@example.com.
