Ceramics has been a creative pursuit for Barbara Ellard since she was a teenager. Clay is a very engaging medium for her because of the contrast between the raw medium; soft, sensuous and malleable, and the finished fired piece. “My current clay work is a combination of wheel throwing and hand building techniques,” explains Ellard. “Recently my work has moved into a more sculptural realm. I am combining wheel thrown forms with both coils and slabs. I am constantly concerned with volume of the piece and the negative space it creates. I want to create a juxtaposition of fullness and constraint.” Her exhibition “Organic Geometry” explores these tensions in her ceramics.

She will give a gallery talk on Friday, April 21 at 6:00 p.m.
