relics of the tide: a new exhibit by jenni ward
July 18th-September 6th, 2015
Artist Reception: Saturday, July 18th, 2015 6-9
The Bone Series is a new line of ceramic sculpture that is focused on the remains of a form. The pieces are abstract interpretations of biological creatures that may have had fleshy fins, flanges or appendages, and these bone structures are all that remains after the flesh is gone. Ward imagines that these pieces might have been discovered in the natural world and are the only clues to the past of what this creature might have been. These relics have been preserved for viewing.
