Cynthia Spencer Hieroglyphs2

This piece completed for a show at Guardino Gallery, Portland in October 2012. I blame my friend Gale Everett for getting me interested in using wire and paper as an expressive means. After doing a workshop with her all I wanted to do was make vessels with  which I could use this technique. So different than glazing chemistry and cooking.

The little pieces in the bottom are small porcelain wishbones. This piece is 16 x 16 x 6″ – $500.

    It’s always nice to inspire others, especially good friends! Here is a piece created by Cynthia Spencer, an incredible artist and person. She had a great show in Portland last fall that featured several works incorporating wire and paper. I feel lucky to own one of her early trials into this combination. Makes me want to work again in ceramics….. Maybe when I get more space!

  2. Wow, Cynthia evolves! Love the red! So a heart, filled with wire catchstrings that seem to ensnare bits/shards/fragments of (solely) biblical verse (and no other verse), as well as a tiny fragile porcelain wishbone, with many many other wishbones waiting below. What does it all mean? What is it saying about Cynthia? That in the end, biblical verse is what fills your heart? S.
