Earth 2 Water is a small exhibit at the Koa Art Gallery at Kapi'olani Community College. One of the five artists in the exhibit is an artist at the Hawaii Potters Guild: Yoko Haar. Yoko calls these two assemblages Ripples I and II. Here's how she describes them: "This new series of work encompasses the theme of this show 'Water.' Until now, I have been emphasizing texture for my work, and have reduced this aspect to go along with this theme. The irregular spaces which formed between the linear portions of each tile reminded me of the way rings of ripples form around droplets of water. When these ripples congregate, like a downpour on still water, it shows a noisy and busy scene which continues to widen, as they continue to affect neighboring spaces."
Earth 2 Water runs from October 22 to November 13. The Koa Art Gallery is open from 10 to 4, Monday to Friday, and 9 to 3 on Saturday.
I began potting in January of 2012. Because I'm so new to potting, I think I understand the challenges of beginning potters and hope this blog will be encouraging to them and a source of helpful information and comment. I hope you'll join the conversation!
