Beauty is found in imperfection. In humans, in nature and especially in art. This is something that I always keep in mind while throwing my pieces on the wheel. This vessel is a beautiful example of this statement. While I was throwing it, I wanted to make something flawless, but my hands were not allowing me to do so. As I pulled and shaped the perfectly centered clay, my frustration toward imperfection turned into admiration for the perfect imperfection found in the clay.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
