The Schaller Gallery is presenting Surface: Decoration, Layers, Drawing, Decals, Pattern, and Carving from now until February 20th. I'm excited to be in the show with many great artists. I'm particularly a fan of the jars by Ursula Hargins and Mark Knott. They show very different approaches to scale and surface in forms that are quite similar. Also check out Melissa Mencini's tumbler with the gold tricycle. Beyond the classic color combo, the glazes ground the tricycle on the same horizontal plane as the bottom of the cup. Nice use of a subtle color scheme to create gravity in the design. (On a total side note Golden Tricycles would be a great indie band name.) You can see more of each of the artist's work by clicking on the links to their websites.

This is one of the mugs that I have included in the exhibition. My offering includes mugs, plates, platters, butter dishes and teapots. You might recognize these mugs from the Merry Christmas Mugs post from late last year. Click here to see them in process. To check out the entire show go to www.schallergallery.com.
