State of Clay 2009

January 15, 2009

I am honored to be included in The State of Clay 2009. Juror Jim Lawton of UMass Dartmouth selected 80 pieces from 285 entries. Below is an excerpt from his jury statement:

” I was charged with gathering a group of work representative of the State of Clay in Massachusetts. The opportunity came with the 285 entries from 106 artists working quite broadly across the ceramic spectrum: functional to sculptural vessels, wall based pictorial and dimensional work, some figurative and those pieces always- delightfully, defy category.
When I look at work I want to be moved- to be challenged by what the work has to say and the quality, materiality of how it says it. I appreciate the terrifying and the beautiful, the nuanced and the bold, the whimsical and the serious – a heart that beats. I was not dissappointed…”

- Jim Lawton, Professor of Ceramics, UMass Dartmouth
