Changing Topics Conversation: The Intention of Color
Artists participating in "The Intention of Color": Michelle Ross, Whitney Lowe, Thomas Orr, Joanna Bloom, Ben Skiba, Jimin Lee, Sarah Stokes.
With a good deal of interest in glaze calculation in the studio, a conversation began around Birdie Boone's luscious use of color and her coaxial color blend. In her article "An Introduction to Color", Birdie touches on the intention of color as it relates to form in her work. This idea inspired the idea of a conversation topic.
The Intention of Color proved to be a complex topic to undertake! Color as underglaze, married to the object through fire, as opposed to color in painting, seen as more of a skin, was one of the many complexities the discussion touched upon. It's possible we all left with more questions than answers.
Following our discussion, our invited artists walked through the Entrance show with the mentees for an open discussion about their work.
Thank you to our guests, Michelle and Whitney, for sharing your insights with us.
