During Ann Arbor Art Fair week, Darcy Bowden will be our featured artist, bringing over one HUNDRED of her ceramic works to the shop! We're clearing out the center section to make room for this fun made in michigan show and sale. Her quirky, modern pieces often have whimsical POPS of color and sensitively drawn lines in the design. Other groups have a mid century feel with chunky sculptural shapes. Ceramic Art & Printmaking Show with Darcy Bowden Tuesday, July 15, 2014. Opening Reception Party. 4-8 pm. July 16,17,18. Meet the artist 3-7 pm daily at FOUND. Sat. July 19. 11 am - 2 pm. Clay Demo by Darcy! Hand forming & decorating simple, modernist bowls using ancient paddling techniques. The group above is just out of the kiln over at Yourist Studios where Darcy does her magic. Notice the bowl shapes. The clay is formed by paddling it over a specially selected stone - a very old method with a modern twist. At the Saturday demo (7/19 from 11-2 at FOUND) Darcy will show us how it's done. The vessels below are an entirely different group she does. All these are coming to the show! Darcy is a long time FOUND friend and inspiration! Many Ann Arborites will recognize Darcy from her days as an art teacher at Huron High School. I almost forgot to mention that printmaking is another of her passions and she'll also bring prints, cards and other fun things to the show. Hope to see you during Art Fair Week 2014!
