Shape and Form at Art Elements Gallery

Shots of my show with Mike Baggetta at Art Elements Gallery, Newberg. Our work is a wonderful pairing of 2D & 3D with both of us employing energetic lines, layers of color and mysterious meanings. Thanks to Loni and Lauren for a super installation of our various pieces.

LBCC Invitational Show

I’m in good company at the North Santiam Gallery on the Main LBCC Campus. William Park, S Tellez and Kristen Kuhns amazed me with their work and I look forward to hearing their comments at the Artist Talk and Reception, noon-1 pm, Thursday, January 30, 2014.

Thanks to Rich Bergeman for a beautiful installation with large pieces, small pieces, bold color and brown woodfired pots. (That little pedestal to the left is my “Impossible Dream” next to William’s biggee.)

Burnt Orange and Sage Green Vases

These vessels are a new twist on some of my tried and true forms. The bright orange glaze comes from a helmer shino that really makes the sage green glaze stand out. While I get more control than if I’d woodfired these, the shino is still very picky about the amount of reduction it gets when I’m firing these, so still more to learn with it.

Small Sipping Cups

Sage-Green-Sipping-CupsThese cups were made to feel good in the hand, with little indentations and places for your fingers to fondle as you sip from them. Red wine or gin are my beverages of choice, but they’ll work well with any hot or cold drink you wish to sip.

They also make a nice cup for a bathroom counter or vase for a short stemmed bouquet.

Each cup holds about 6 oz.
3-3/4″ tall by 3″ diameter at the mouth.

$20/ea.

Are We There Yet?

Cynthia Spencer Are We There YetThis piece was started at a workshop I taught last spring. It was a request piece and I struggled to get it roughed out in a day but didn’t quite make it. People were patient with my trying to get the floppy sides dried enough to put together. (I didn’t use the naughty words I would’ve been using if alone in my studio.) Finished up the form later that day and then took several days to get it carved into the shape I wanted, tho it slumped a bit more in the firing into this shape. Used a multi-layered color scheme to go with it’s slightly off-beat shape.
