As an experimental ceramic artist, Christopher Reid Flock’s work is profoundly influenced by the significant time that he spent in Japan and the mentorship that he received from some of Canada’s most respected potters. Among other accolades, Flock was the recipient of the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics in 2014. Although this ambitious exhibition will include some works from his earlier career, it will feature more prominently his large-scale, installation-based works that whimsically ‘play’ with notions of function while merging rapid prototyping with classical clay process.
A companion exhibition will feature works by Flock’s mentors Bruce Cochrane, Diane Nasr O’Young and Kayo O’Young.
