For the Flowers- Schaller Gallery- Carpenter, Pavelka, Baker, myself and many more.
For the Flowers has just gone online at the Schaller Gallery. It will be online from May 23rd - June 19th. There are some great pots in the show. I particularly liked the variety of shapes that people sent. Kyle and Will's pots are fresh takes on the oval and triangle. I tend to stick to square/circle/oval so Will's pot got me thinking about triangles. Kyle's deco is a well fired flashing slip topped with masterful brushwork. Kristen's vase is a unique but simple idea. Elevating a basic form with a thrown stand is a nice way to get a visually heavy form up in the air. I like that she left so much Terra Cotta showing. Check out these artists by clicking on their names.
I sent six bud vases that have heavy slip trailed linear patterns on the surface. I decided to keep the decoration minimal to let the flowers pop. From a color standpoint I like the blue one the best. Which one do you guys like? Click here to check them out.
