Liz Hunt, Untitled

Statement:

I would like to say something profound about the times we are living through right now but I feel have always had a short attention span, a wondering mind and a compulsion to move from one way of working to the next. Fitting my personal work in between job related obligations has always been a challenge so working around this virus has not affected my work much.

One of my ongoing series is working with lots of smaller components to make a larger piece. Working this way allows me to come back to come back to the piece over a longer period of time.  But mostly I feel there is a power in multiples and a rhythm in repetition. There is an energy that happens as your eye bounces between similar objects.

Price: Not for sale


Jenna Ritter, Repose

About Jenna: Born & raised in NYC, Jenna Ritter has joyfully been living in Santa Fe for 5 years. “A Celebration of Clay 2020: Perspectives” is the first public showing of her work.

New to the arts, Jenna has been working in clay for 3 years. In addition to study at the Santa Fe Community College, Jenna is privileged to study with Clarence Cruz, National Treasure & esteemed potter of Ohkay Owingeh Pueblo, located on the Tewa lands of Northern NM. While Clarence teaches traditional coil hand building techniques, he also conveys a special intimacy with clay, communicating the profound, sacred relationship of maker with material and the powerful depth available within every stage of the process of creating.

Statement: In 2003, while on a silent retreat in South India, I was directed to take a nature walk and observe the earth, water, fire, air, and space elements and reflect on where in myself I discover these to be. On that walk I became aware that the elements are not simply in front of and around me but also inside of me. Waking up to the deep connection that exists between the external world and my own self provided a deep healing and wizened knowing: we are all deeply interrelated, each a small part of the larger whole. I began to understand that to know Nature is to know the self.

Jenna Ritter, untitled

Statement: Through the creation of each piece I make – from the gathering and cleaning of the clay, to the building with, the firing of, and its eventual use – a relationship growing in trust and understanding occurs and deepens for me. The wonderous fragile and sure interconnectedness of all of life and the harmony and beauty that can be created (or destroyed) when the right balance is honored (or not) keeps me building.

As I work, I enjoy exploring the edges and boundaries and how they blend or contrast. How/where/for what purpose do ancient and modern meet? What do humans and Mother Nature offer each other/take from each other? What are the effects/affects of dark/light, smooth/texture? Where and when is there movement/stillness? What are the rhythms in a creation and how do they express in a completed piece?

My pieces “Untitled” and “Repose” aim to offer a contemporary sensibility rooted in traditional foundations offering the viewer a meditative, reflective pause. Working from my heart, these pieces offer a prayer of healing and hope, of connection and communion, in these intensified, unprecedented times.

Sue Baum, Everyday Kimono of my Memories

This one of a series of kimono’s that I have made after two amazing trips to Japan, but my fascination with textiles and design began as a 6 yr old, when I began making my own original paper doll clothing. My degree is in Fashion design from Pratt Institute and my design teacher was the first Japanese person I had ever known. I’ve incorporated many actual garment making details into my clay work.

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.

Statement: Fascination with the science that is occurring on the International Space Station has encouraged me to go outside in the cool of the evening sunset to observe it passing quickly and brightly 240 miles overhead.

Description: Clay and steel

Statement: In my current work, clay and steel function in unison, creating an abstract narrative about walls and boundaries.  Clay, when fired, is impermeable to time and the elements. Steel, by its nature, gradually disintegrates, leaving only a trace. Paradoxically, we are left with both a temporary and lasting record on the landscape and in our collective memory.
