Judy Blake of Lincoln, NB produces sensuous smoke-fired ceramics. She achieves these effects by extensive experiments with unglazed surface treatments using alternative firing techniques such as sawdust-firing, naked raku and saggar-firing. This exhibition will feature new works inspired by her love of the exquisite beauty of humble seed pods. With each piece, she is interested in finding a subtle balance between strength of form and sense of presence.
This exhibition is sponsored by CI Global Asset Management.
Curated by Jennifer Pazienza and John Leroux, and organized by the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.
