Title: Aspen Trees: Fall and Winter

Size: 9.5″h x 19″w x 1″d

Price:  $ 400

Description: White stoneware.  Hand built using soft slab, carved.  Surface decoration achieved using underglazes, wax resist, glaze washes and glazes.  Fired to cone 6.

Statement: These pieces were inspired by the Aspen trees growing at our cabin near Chama.  I tried to capture the beauty of the entire tree, from the unique trunk to the spectacular leaves, some shimmering yellow-gold, some pinkish-red.  Surprisingly, they are equally beautiful in the winter, blending in yet standing out in contrast to the snowy landscape.

The raven, an image I often use, is here in its guise of scavenger, attracted by the glint of something shiny, maybe hope.

Title:  Midnight Toast – True Porcelain Sake Set

Size:  7″h x 7″w x 7″d

Light and Shadow:  True porcelain is opaque; shadows can be seen through the surface of clay.

Price:  $120

Statement:  Porcelain is my medium of choice; the clay body is like no other. True porcelain is soft and challenging to throw with, yet stronger than other clay bodies. I enjoy the process of throwing, shaping, and trimming the clay into a functional art form that is unique in the southwest. I take inspiration from pieces being created across the world in Japan. Once porcelain is fired it is opaque; shadows can be seen through the surface of clay. With a dark glaze I depart from traditional porcelain decoration and take away the transparency of the clay, creating work only visible in the light.

Light and Shadow:  The Celtic Goddess Brigid was born rising into the sky with rays of fire beaming from Her head. She is the goddess of the Hearthfire, Healing, Inspiration, Creativity, Writing, arts and Crafts, Medicine and Childbirth. As a Sun Goddess Her gifts are Light (inspiration), and the vital and healing energy of the sun. Her day of celebration is Imbolc – February 1st, and is celebrated by the lighting of fires, (the Festival of Lights.) There are four fire festivals in the Celtic year. Imbolc focuses on the Light of the fire. Brigid’s fire is the spark alive in each of us.

This piece represents the yearly ritual of extinguishing all the fires in Ireland then relighting them from the eternal fire of the Head Druid. This rider, still in the shadow of winter, is bringing a lit torch back to her hearthfire.

Statement:  Sheena Cameron’s lifelong artistic passion has been with clay. Although exploring many other art forms, she now lives and works in her ceramic studio in the village of Rinconada (near Dixon). She fires many of her pieces in her outdoor raku kiln. She has become known for her one-of-a-kind horse sculptures that have gemstone manes and tails and open to reveal inner treasures relating to the theme of the individual piece. Firing them using the raku process or other unusual surface techniques insures that each will be unique. Each comes with a miniature “book” telling the theme of the horse piece, the kinds and meanings of the stones used and the personal message of the particular horse. She often does these horses in series. Most notable are the Goddess series, the raven series, the homage to famous artist series, the seahorse series, and the vision quest series.

All Cameron’s work is hand built. The latest series are mandala inspired raku raven bowls taking full advantage of the deep blacks that can be achieved with the smoking step of the raku process. She also does larger sculpture using human, animal and symbolic motifs.
