Lisa Clague







I realized the other day that I had never posted about the amazing sculptor, Lisa Clague.  Not only is Clague's imagery provocative, but her textures and palate are perfectly refined. The artist's inclusion of other materials is also inspiring because ceramics with additional media is a difficult line to balance.  I am particularly fond of her sculptural cups. That mouse directly above it also pretty incredible.  Who has seen her work in person?  What is it like close up?

Her work was at the 1st Annual Ceramics Exhibition in August. It's even better in real life.

Most Western North Carolina clay people know and have seen Lisa's work in exhibition. In fact she is part of a show at Crimson Laurel in Bakersville, NC right now. I agree with you regarding texture, skill, combining media and palate; however, I just don't get what she is trying to say with her art. It's kind of sacrilege around here to say that, but I just don't get it.

@ Oy Clay-

I don't know what she is saying either, but I know her work makes me think.

Isn't that what art is supposed to do? Get us to think? I suppose her work might be a lot less interesting if we 'got it' right away.
