Artists Describing Their Art:

Linda Casbon - In Paul Valery's words, "to see is to forget the name of the thing one sees". My work translates forms into a language of metaphoric associations. It hints at meanings without using literal descriptions. Objects are the visual sounds of this language. When placed together these words form a sentence, a poem, and a kind of narrative with its own internal logic. The pieces look like . . . feel like . . . sound like . . . but cannot be consciously identified or named. With this work I am striving for a sense of unnameable familiarity. Some of the work consists of single objects. I view these pieces as words or emblems. More often the work is a group of objects, or a composition. Ceramic forms are used as a sculptural canvas to draw on, creating interplay between painted shapes and actual shapes. The physical scale and formal qualities of the work reference the body. Current series include: "Pillows" which have a volume reminiscent of lungs and breathing, "Tunnels" and "Blankets" which focus on differences between inside and outside and the idea of transformational space, and "Cages" which utilize structural elements to create form and explore three-dimensional mapping and order versus randomness. The surfaces and ...

Kathleen Hill - Artist Statement I choose to work with clay because it is receptive to unlimited combinations of texture, form and structure. I've always been fascinated with the textures, forms and colors in the world around me. Clay allows me to recreate and manipulate the various forms and textures that I choose to incorporate in my art work. Flower petals, eroded landscapes, reefs, corrugated roadbeds, bark, the curve of a tree limb and other natural objects inspire a tactile language I use to create art works that are visceral; amorphic; asymmetrical. I want the finished work to have elements of the familiar but not clearly reference any particular item. All living things go through a multitude of changes and survive a number of challenging events. Clay allows me to show or suggest a history or series of layers of events .. that reflects the process of change. This is a recurring theme in my work that recognizes the fundamental reality of change as a part of all living processes. While I often have a specific phrase or title in mind when creating a specific piece, I am curious to hear what others see in my work. The viewer brings their own experiences ...

Gayla Lemke - I have always been intrigued by primitive art...especially art from the South Pacific...body painting...tattoos...wood carving...stone carving...the universal symbols contained therein that connect. I find that my own "doodles" reflect similar imagery. This body of work stems from the drawings that flow from me when not thinking, as well as the influence from looking at and studying primitive/oceanic art. The forms themselves are allowed to take shape as they are built. The surface carving follows the same path in development. My work tells a story, be it literal or symbolic. This personal narrative has been influenced by exposure to the various cultures and histories of the places I have lived and visited. The sculptures are hand built with slabs and coils from a heavily grogged clay. At the leather hard stage they are carved with a variety of tools. After being bisque fired, a black stain is applied and they are again fired to cone 04. The sculptures of houses contain the above elements, but became more personally influenced by current events in my life. I recently built a studio and the structure of doing construction comes through in these pieces. The red metal...

Nicki Wood - My work is a personal narrative. I am laying it out like a diary for all to read. My work is a personal narrative using the female figure and the use of objects as metaphor. Although Gender specific, the objects are chosen because they have a history or profound social personality of their own. What is intentionally being represented is a time and place of regret and emptiness and the moment of this realization. Within this moment of realization, exists an attraction and at the same time a repulsion of femine stereotypes, sweets and the link between the two. ...

Carl Gray Witkop - Beauty created by natural forces is sublime, sometimes so intense, sometimes hidden. I allow fire to finish my pots to include natural beauty in my creations. I handbuild pots by the coil method then burnish them with a smooth stone. There is no glaze. Other than some color in the clay slips, all the color results from the firing. I remove the pots red hot from the kiln, then finish the firing in a pit. The hot pots contact various fuels such as sawdust, hair, flowers, or weeds, which leave smoke stains and areas which are reduced or oxidized. ...

Cathy Feiss - In my artwork, I am interested in expressing what I can't express easily in words. When I was younger, I was very interested in poetry and I feel that my interest in the visual arts comes from the same source, involving the construction of a kind of visual poem. Much of my work process is intuitive, or possesses intuitive elements within a rational framework. I am most interested in conveying a sense of energy, emotion, or an idea, through a form that may also have a planned and methodical basis. Multi-Group (Grass) and (Sand), grew out of the desire to convey the sense of something being born or emerging from something protective. In this series, a smaller element gradually emerges from a larger form, protruding out of a womb-like or protective surrounding. These pieces could also represent a kind of regeneration or growth from one form to another, or something sprouting in nature. Recently, I finished a series inspired by real and imaginary pods and plants. These works show the intricate morphology of organic forms. The pieces in the series are based on a fuzzy Australian plant with external fin-like seed pods (Banksia Grandiflora II), flower...

Carol Donahue - Kalathil - I studied Computer Graphics, and Fine Art at Tompkins Cortland Community College 2000, then transfered to the State University of New York at Cortland College to study Fine Arts 2002. While attending Cortland College I concentrated on a new medium, ceramics. For the first time in my life I discovered the wonderful tactile world of clay. Most of my hand built projects were envisioned in my mind's eye, and then communicated through my hands. The clay spoke to me, each time I put my hand into the clay, the creative forces with in me took over. I am an Illustrator, and paint in watercolor, acrylics, and oil. I also am involved in Computer Graphics and design with my partner, who is a web designer. I enjoy creating and feel that art is the true way to communicate emotions and the driving force of life it self. 2006-2007 currently studying at The Armory Art Center West Palm Beach Florida. Involved in Hand Sculpted Ceramics, and Painting the Figure. Sincerely, Carol Donahue-Kalathil ...

Jeannette L. Jennings - My first cat came as part of the package with some used pottery equipment I purchased in 1979,'Amelia' posed next to me while I worked and soon a small clay cat was produced. This became the favorite piece of all who saw my work. Near the end of the 80's, I decided to specialize in cats: Cat Plates, Watch Cats (sculptures) and Bells, Cat Clocks, and Cat Pins. More recently Cookie Jars have been quite popular. I continue to explore other areas of work: tile, vases, masks, sculpture, and fountains. Neriage: mixing several different clay colors,has been a long time technique used in cats and my other work. All of the work on this site is hand built by me. ...
