Surfing with Helen Bates - February 27 2006 - Germany, USA, USA/Peru

Kirsten Brünjes (Bremen, Germany) (German)
(Strange, simplified forms of animals, often with textured surfaces)
(Stoneware) (Just click on the thumbnails for larger images.)

Velarde, Kukuli (Born in Peru, lives in the USA) (Adult content)
(Figural Ceramic sculptor and painter) (The sculptures are often of
assemblages of small figures.) (To get to the ceramic sculpture hover
the mouse pointer over the thumbnails strip and move right. It is
tricky to get the mouse to click on one image in the moving strip
before the next one comes along.)

Charlie Tefft Pottery (Guilford College, Greenboro, NC, USA)
(Sophisticated functional pottery fired in a gas reduction atmosphere
to cone 10 (2381 F) (1,305 C) and decorated using a combination of ash
glazes, slips, and oxide washes)
(City Art Gallery, Greenville, NC, USA has a few of Telft's pieces, and
a good selection of ceramic work by other artists.)

Historical photo: University City Pottery, St. Louis, MO, USA)
(Shown are Frederick H. Rhead, Samuel Robineau, Edward Gardner Lewis,
Adelaide Alsop Robineau, Mabel Gertrude Lewis, Eugene Labarriere,
George Julian Zolnay, Emile Diffloth and Taxile Doat, in a photograph
appearing in "The Woman's National Daily" on April 9, 1910.) (Scroll
down to links to a number of other photographs from the same era.)

Zimmerman, Arnold (Arnie) (New York, NY, USA)
(Exaggeration and the bizarre in clay sculpture and vessels lead to a
distinct feeling of surrealism.)

Enjoy! -Helen
