Artists on Santa Fe Gallery is honored to feature the wood-fired ceramics of Barry Krzywicki this month. You will enjoy seeing his fine white and brown stoneware for all uses at reasonable prices, including vessels for drinking, pouring and storing, small plates, as well as decorative objects. Chat with Barry about his creative process and extensive travels during the 3rd Friday Artist's reception; refreshments will be served.
Artist's Statement: "Transformation is a metaphor for the ceramic journey I've taken over the last 40 years. I could not have imagined what my work would look like when I began. My wheel thrown drinking vessels, teapots, creamers, jars and plates are enhanced by pattern, facets and textures. They are fired in a wood burning kiln, where the sun's energy stored by a tree is released as heat that physically and chemically transforms the clay into a hard ceramic material. As the kiln is stoked, flames lick the pots and leave nuances of color and texture on the pieces. The surface of each piece is unique, a memento of the transformative power of fire." Barry Krzywicki
Third Friday will be your time to come a meet with Barry and learn all about wood firing.
