Joe Bova’s ceramic animal rhytons are often very powerful, and I find the use of the animal as a sacred object and its relation to ancient cultures a very interesting aspect of his work.
Julie Elkins work in porcelain is most interesting to me because of her use of stains. I also find the way she depicts space to be a very powerful abstraction.
Shari Mcwilliams has a minor in animal science. Her pieces deal with the struggles animals face in disease by depicting the sickness literally. This piece, called swamp fever, sends a powerful message that connects the animal to a very human situation.
