Cynthia Morelli

While working on pieces for this show, my mind is preoccupied by the elegant, wooden Haida feast bowls that I love to look at in the Anchorage Museum. The wood is thick, patinated by use. They exemplify the generosity that I associate with mass of material and are nurtured by the feeding of many over time.

To prepare and share food with my family and friends demonstrated my love for them. With these massive, heavy pots I am making, can I convey generous bounty and elegantly serve hearty sustenance even before the food joins them?

Lisa Wood

I make functional stoneware and porcelain pots, fired in a wood fired kiln or gas kiln using soda ash for an atmopheric firing. Most days you can find me in my studio or hitching a ride across the bay to pick blueberries.

In this work I’ve explored a dialogue through the repitition of form. How does repitition change our perception of an object? As an artist of primarily functional pottery, I wanted to challenge the idea of function first and shift my focus to formal concerns. This shift reveals new interconnections within each set. Through this process I’ve experienced a new release in creativity.
