Archway Gallery presents Carol Berger: "From the Earth" opening reception
Archway Gallery presents "From the Earth," featuring decorative ceramics by Carol Berger. The artist will be on hand to visit with guests during the exhibition opening reception.
Berger’s artwork is often influenced by images, patterns and colors from nature. As an environmentalist and an avid reuse-recycler, Berger hopes that by creating work which reflects our natural world, others will be encouraged to join her efforts in protecting our earth.
This show is comprised of decorative pieces that include both stoneware and porcelain clay bodies. Many of Berger’s works focus on the use of a surface treatment described as “Naked Raku” on the porcelain to obtain the greatest degree of black and white contrast. Larger pieces, such as fountains, are designed in stoneware for durability outdoors. Some pieces are wheel-thrown and others are hand-built with the firing range of anywhere from low fire to Cone 9 depending on the desired finish.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until May 2.
