New York Ceramics & Glass Fair 2015 Review

“New York Ceramics & Glass Fair 2015” in Past Imperfect: The Art of Inventive Repair by Andrew Baseman

“It was heartening for me to see so many examples of antique and contemporary ceramics with inventive repair in such a prestigious venue. It gives me hope that beauty in imperfection is now being embraced by more artists, dealers and collectors than ever before.”

Baseman remarks on work by Mara Superior, Frances Palmer, and Paul Scott in his January 24th blog entry.

A Clay Bestiary VIRTUAL TOUR on video

A Clay Bestiary VIRTUAL TOUR on video

Video offers another chance to view and enjoy A Clay Bestiary.

A Clay Bestiary, a recent show at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, New Jersey, brought together a diverse body of ceramic work by contemporary artists. The artists have re-imagined and reinterpreted various members of the animal kingdom; infused them with new concepts, ideas, and messages; and in the process freed each piece from being a literal portrayal.

This video presentation by Bill Ivie of CINEMATIC EYE / CINEMABRIDE takes the viewer on a tour of the entire exhibit. As the camera moves around the works it takes in intimate close-up views and steps back to encompass a broader view — all that you would experience had you been there in person. The film moves at a leisurely pace and is interspersed with limited dialog giving the viewers time to really view each work and form their own reactions before moving on to the next.

This group show includes the work of Ferrin Contemporary artists Jason WalkerRed Weldon Sandlin, and Sergei Isupov.

Crafts magazine reviews “Confected, Borrowed, and Blue: Paul Scott”

Teleri Lloyd-Jones reviews Paul Scott’s exhibition at the Holburne Museum in Bath, England in Crafts magazine Jan–Feb 2015.

“These are the works from the past 15 years of Scott’s practice, in no explicit order, so rather than a developing hand we meet a political voice that’s also a love letter to an aesthetic tradition.”
