The Clay Studio will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.
Sandra Torress use of porcelain plays on contrast and modulation of different colors and shades. The colors softness and sharp edges create a dramatic chromatic composition in contrast to the white, translucent and matte porcelain surface. This push and pull accentuates the simplicity of the shape. Sandras desire for thin, delicate forms with a sturdy body inspired her to use slip casting. Her interest in unglazed surfaces led to her usage of soluble salts to create a selective palette of color that creates watercolor-like effects.
Porcelain, in the thinnest of its expressions, demonstrates a life of its own, moving to the heat of the firing and resulting in an imprint of its own memory.
