Artist of the Day: Smiling Cow Studio
In case you don't remember I first introduced you to Adrienne and Zack of Smiling Cow Studio back during April's Artist of the Day posts (see that post here). And by the looks of these images, they've been busy! I'm loving the new imagery on this work, quite different from the pieces I showed last time. Interesting choice of subject matter and interesting how both have gravitated towards imagery. I love the playful nature of this work and the elegant simplicity of the marriage of design and image.
Here's the bio:
Zach's formal training was at the Alberta College of Art and design. He lives in Maple Creek, SK, where he and his wife run Smiling Cow Studio, a small pottery run out of the covered in veranda of their 1914 house.
Zach works in porcelain, and enjoys letting the material dictate the form. He is interested in the dichotomy of rural and city; nature and industry. He uses iconic imagery to explore these themes.
Read more about Adrienne and Zack on their blog and make sure to stop by their online store.
