This series of nine pieces, in a familiar material and process, represents a test of new techniques to add color to the surface and clay body. Avoiding the use of color as mere surface treatment, I aim to use it to physically change the material. Through pigmenting the typically white clay using slip casting in layers and removal of clay material from the mold, I can make the coloration and patterning on the pieces implicit.

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.
