This is the first time I have exhibited my work at coffeehouse. Sweewaters Cafe on Washington St in Ann Arbor, MI is a great space.
Founded in 1993 by Wei and Lisa Bee in downtown Ann Arbor. They now have locations in several other States.It can be challenging for a 3-D artist to transition to wall hanging pieces. The 15 works on display here are the most I have ever created.
Designing narrative figurative sculpture in boxes is not new for me. I have enjoyed the process of mixing my sculpture with other media and found objects from the beginning.
In the last two years I have learned to enjoy creating relief tile pieces like those above. This process is like drawing and allows me to complete work more quickly because of the smaller surface area and the faster clay drying time.
I am hoping this exposes my work to a wider audience and possibly generates some sales or commissions.
I would love to learn other clay artist experience with untraditional exhibit settings.
