MudFire Clayworks and Gallery Upcoming Shows

Spotlight Show: Diana Fayt
July 30 - August 1, 2010

Diana Fayt of San Francisco is visiting MudFire for back-to-back weekend workshops, and she's bringing with her a large selection of bowls, vases, a platter, and new cup forms. The Spotlight show will open July 30th at Noon. The show and sale of approximately 25 works will be up Saturday, Sunday and Monday only!

Diana is known for her elegant compositions with fine lines, painstaking detail, abstract embellishments, and bold blocks of color. Her work combines layers of visual information to create intrigue and invite thoughtful reflection. Her work doesn't linger on the shelves for long, so hurry over and don't miss this opportunity to lay your claim to a beautiful piece of Diana's pottery!

Our Spotlight Series of gallery exhibits focuses on individual artists, presenting a generous amount of new work for short run display and sale.

The gallery will be open all three days from Noon to 8:00 pm.

MudFire Gallery is pleased to welcome 15 studio potters from across the nation for an in-depth look at the exquisite beauty of hand-crafted porcelain objects.
