Flourish an exhibition of Decorative Ceramics by Connie Pike
April 9 – May 21, 2011
Exhibition Reception: Saturday, April 9, 2011, from 2 - 4 pm
Connie Pike has been a professional potter and ceramic artist in Alberta since 1978. Her approach to working with clay evolves as she investigates function and aesthetic. Shapes and designs build upon themselves and new versions of form and decoration filter through her body of work and refresh the process. Connie’s love of detail and drawing is the major influence on the work featured in Flourish. With a focus on using texture and line, Connie carves her drawings into a lino block tile and rolls the impression into the soft clay. She has adapted this method to decorate her tiles, trays, book covers, boxes, vases, mugs, glasses, jugs and vessels.
