The latest exhibition at the Sierra Arts Foundation Gallery is a collection of beautiful stoneware from Joe and Shiho Winter, the show is called Inspirations and Collaborations. The show features pieces both large and small with a variety of colors, textures and patterns.
I am always fascinated by the gorgeous colors an artist of stoneware is able to create. If you’ve ever worked in this medium, you know that what goes in the kiln doesn’t look like what comes out, it takes a lot of experimentation and understanding to perfect the techniques. The pieces currently on display are an excellent example.
Pictures cannot do these colors and textures justice, you must stop in and see the show for yourself. While you’re here be sure to say hello!
