Student Incubator at the Comox Valley Art Gallery (CVAG) and moving on to making pottery…

it’s quite odd to see many of the figures that I have been working on over the past six months sitting in the window of the local art gallery.
I’ve tried to keep the exhibit dynamic by moving the figures around among the three plinths, onto the floor, and onto the four wooden crates in the window.
The wire-only figure on the right is a new addition, created since the exhibit went up.
And the wire figure on the far left is another new addition, also created since the exhibit first went up.
Pottery
This piece is entitled “open” and is the first coil piece I tried.
I think of these two vessels as “monstrosities”, and when I told one of my instructors that I thought of them in that way, she suggested I make a third one. So I did.
The third monstrosity is not yet complete, and to be fair, I don’t call them “monstrosities”, but instead have entitled them “One of Three”, “Two of Three”, and “Three of Three”.
“Three of Three” closer look.
“Three of Three” base, which will need to be retextured.
These vertical coils are meant to represent underwater grass, and I like the way they swirl and twist around one another.
