Feats of Clay XXIV

I just got back from the openings of the California Clay Competition at The Artery Gallery in Davis, CA and Feats of Clay at Gladding McBean Clay Factory in Lincoln, CA. I am so honored to be included in both shows.

The gala opening for Feats of Clay was especially fun. A clay factory is a marvelous place to hold a huge party! The factory produces clay pipe and terra cotta tiles and sculptures for architectural uses. The building houses a group of beehive kilns, one of which has been converted into a gallery and houses half of the show. The other half of the show is upstairs in a work area. They have a 100 year old elevator that takes patrons up to see the show.

There is a tour of both the factory and the show that runs through the month of May. It is really interesting to see the molds and work areas that produce the facades of buildings all over the country. You need a reservation for the tour or 916 645-9713
