THE ALCHEMY OF SURFACE

An Exhibition of Amazing Ceramic Surfaces


An inspired surface can turn plain into remarkable, remarkable into sublime. This group of artists is sharing their extraordinary (often secret) surface techniques and formulas.

Alchemy is a power that transforms something in a mysterious and impressive way.   In this exhibition, clay, chemicals, and flame make magic: Thirty Oregon ceramic artists will display their work and disclose glaze recipes, textural techniques, firing methods, and other hard-won secrets.   View the brilliant and sometimes challenging realizations of forms and their exceptional surfaces.  The artists are sharing  their details, formulas and techniques  and you will leave full of magical ideas.  Take away a full-color “how to” booklet, or find information online  to use now and in the future in your own studio.
