The exhibit will be a display of 500-1,000 ceramic vessels ranging from one inch to sixteen inches in height to form clusters. These clusters will be illuminated and finished in a rich organic array of glazes. Sound will play a role in the exhibiting of these vessels setting the tone for the enironment that they exist in. For me this exhibit symbolizes the individual represented in the form of a tubular vessel and it's ability to come together as something larger then itself. This individual is then categorized by color and shape to interact with each other in groups. With lights spotlighted on these vessels that will cast shadows and increase the presence of these clusters. 

Opening Reception: Dec. 10 4:30-7 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
