Vivian Pastor

Artist statement :

Vivian Pastor creates ceramic sculptures to touch on how emotions can be reflective in the process of making. With this the challenge is to make a sculpture that will become whole from the many pieces. The created pieces deal with the difficulties of balancing life and finding inner peace with her own life tragedies. Her biggest influence is nature especially flowers and the discoveries of the hunt.

Mary Aldrich

Artist Bio:

I have come full circle in ceramics. I have always loved tea bowls and the way they fit into the hand. So in 2010 I began taking classes at Glassell in pursuit of  beautifully thrown functional hand held pieces. As I learned more about ceramics I began to explore making larger sculptural pieces, comfortable to placement outdoors. Then with the lock down in 2020, I found myself returning to my studio, Nosami studio in the Heights, to once again make small functional pieces. This time they are simple in form and highly decorated. I am not sure what I will explore next but I am not finished exploring ceramics.

Lilly Lerner-Reilley

Artist Bio:

Her art is made in different clays, techniques and firings. His hand-made pieces are inspired by the story that each piece wants to tell and uses intrinsic materiality to make it. The body of Lilly’s clay work focuses on the depictions of the elements of daily living that are part of the human journey. Her work, “the purses” uses purses to represent women’s’ individual and collective voices in the community. Her initial purses reflected the stories of the first-generation immigrant women in Lilly’s childhood community in Colombia. Her series “Messengers and the Queen” depicts the voices and messages of women that are models in current times. Lilly’s current work continues to reflect women’s’ voices, but now, the emphasis is collective voices as seen from her own perspective as an immigrant to another country.

Anne Steacy

Artist Bio:

Growing up in a family of craftspeople, including boat builders and stonemasons, has given me the fundamentals to create. That, combined with an interest in architecture and construction, has moved my current work toward crude buildings, tools, and other structures.

Developing a crude, rustic, distressed surface is my primary goal. To that end, I have been experimenting with clay bodies, firing techniques and glazes to simulate the textures of weather-beaten aged wood, rusted steel and stone, The results of this experimentation are evident in my work.

When the viewer is drawn to the surface texture details, I know I have achieved success.
