With less than a week to go before the tour starts, here is our third installment about media featured on it. We’ve covered watercolour artists and acrylic artists so far, and now we are going to look at those who create art that is three-dimensional rather than two. These include ceramic artists, potters, sculptors, and those who find something with a beautiful natural shape and make it into an art piece by painting it or finishing it decoratively in some way. Jewellery is of course, also three-dimensional, but we will group them together in a different post.
So, especially if you have some space on a shelf or a table that needs to be beautifully filled, check out these artists at their locations:
Ashley uses the ceramic process to create her menagerie of misfit beasts.
At Location #5 there is both
Sculpted and thrown ceramic works.
An avid creationist who hopes to expose people to the beauty of wood.
Next we have
Decorative and functional pottery in vibrant colours – handbuilding and wheel. Every piece original and unique.
Unique gourd sculptures retaining organic integrity and mixed media washi & vintage collages.
and at the next stop
Clay artist and primitive rug hooker. A love of folk art and whimsy is evident in her work.
From there, it’s a whole bunch of location numbers but a rather short drive to Woodstock where you’ll find
Functional stoneware and decorative pieces – uniquely styled mugs, bowls, platters, vases, ovenware and wearable art.
And coming to the end of the stop numbers, there is
Decorative pottery – wheel–thrown or hand built. “I love the way porcelain responds to glazes.”
Remember, many of our tour locations feature more than one artist, or more than one medium worked in. So even if you plan your tour based on one of the lists mentioned in these blog posts, you’ll find a number of other kinds of art along your way! Be sure to have a look at our other posts if this is your first encounter, and stay tuned or subscribe to see more coming up all this week!
