Raye’s Gallery at Ruxton Creek has the pleasure to announce that Alyson Blanton’s exquisite jewel-like ornamental vases will be on exhibit for the month of May: The Language of Clay. Start your night in Manitou Springs on May 3, and catch the shuttle.
Raye is showcasing “The Language of Clay,” new works by guest artist, Alyson Blanton during the month of May.
Raye met Alyson while participating in a week-long intensive creative workshop, with Andy Ducett at Bemis School of Art.
As a capstone for the week the assignment was to produce a personal artistic performance piece.
Alyson began her performance by reaching for a large hammer and to everyone’s astonishment they witnessed this powerful women begin taking a large hammer to a cherished piece of her ceramic art.
Everyone gasped into silence and in awe of this phenomenal artist destroying this lovely piece of art.
It is with the greatest of pleasure Raye’s Gallery at Ruxton Creek invites you to come and see for yourself this series of exquisite jewel-like ornamental vases.
Alyson’s work provides relief in ceramics that is fresh, bright and adorned with gold and silver luster.
She states, “I often refers to myself as one who speaks the language of clay fluently and I serve as an interpreter to my students until they become fluent themselves” and “this wrinkled or mis-shaped part of the piece is what is precious. It expresses freedom from conformity, freedom from oppressive forces.
Alyson is a Ceramics Instructor at Bemis School of Art, Colorado College and attended George Washington University, receiving her BA in Art in 1995.
