Raymond Avenue Gallery proudly presents the pottery of Craig Edwards and the Works on Paper by Anita Ophoven.
Edward’s own words: “My journey as a potter is one that combines my dual interests of making functional pottery and the art of tea. I enjoy making pottery out of a course stoneware clay and wood firing it in an anagama that I built, in New London, Minnesota, where my studio is located. The firings are between three and five days in duration. The longer firing allows me to slow down and spend some time with the process. The pots that come out of a longer firing are like friends from childhood that have lived a life and I am meeting them again in their old age.”
Ophoven has said of her work: “Working on paper is convenient for someone who divides her life between two places. To some degree, the nature of the materials dictates the nature of the work. It suits my interest in detail and precision, and my love of the process, especially the very laborious process of colored pencil drawing.”
