Exhibit: Ceramics by Marina Smelik
Sunday, September 3, 2017
The typical expectation of ceramic pieces is to be strong, monolithic, and tightly interconnected with very few openings. However, it is possible to create airy scaffolding-like structures, and the Weightless Ceramics exhibition provides a glimpse of it. Artist Marina Smelik has created a collection of work that is made from Paperclay, a clay mixed with cellulose fibers. This material allows for work that is light, delicate, almost weightless.
