We are excited to be using our gallery space to showcase talented artists in our LOAM community.
For the month of July 2021 we have invited Carolynne Pynn Trudeau who is a LOAM an instructor for a number of our 6 Week Classes!
The pots in this collection are a largely a reflection my states of mind during this weird past year.
Returning from Korea at the beginning of the pandemic, I happily worked with the memories I carried of colour and light playing on dark hills and water. As things shut down, in a slight panic, I used up some of the antique materials I had on hand, coming up with drifts of colour.
Time wore on, and on, and I reacted to that hectic colour with a calm, subtle white on white. More time passed and looking for a little more control and crisp edges, I started to use automotive detailing tape as a resist.
When my husband and I started to see some of our children and grandchildren again, I wanted colour that was happy but somewhat restrained, and made happy pots using a green-brown glaze sponged onto tape resist.
Other than the few post-Korea lidded pots, this is a display of jugs and drinking vessels. I think we are all yearning to share a lemonade, iced coffee, or G&T in the warm weather.
We welcome you to visit our gallery to shop Carolynne's amazing work!
