In the past half decade, the aesthetic spectrum of wood-fired ceramics has expanded as the second generation of practitioners builds experimental kilns, investigates various woods, clays, firing protocols and personal visions. While many of us get better at what we already know to do, younger wood firers are working out moves of their own, sometimes in midair after bouncing off traditional diving boards.
This exhibition will showcase the persistent exploration of forms and surfaces as wood-firing continues to attract a widening clan of participants and connoisseurs.

AMY CARNAHAN, DRAFTED VESSELS
Amy designs and builds ceramic vessels that reflect her background in architecture.
Her work often begins with a sketch or drafted rendering. She re-creates the shapes from these drawings in clay, using lines to build texture into the geometry of her vessels.
COMMUNITY ARTS GALLERY:
THE FETZER INSTITUTE, TUERK HOUSE AND CLAYWORKS
Baltimore Clayworks and the Fetzer Institute developed a robust partnership exemplifying the power of love and forgiveness through craft—in particular, the work that Baltimore Clayworks does with the men at the Tuerk House, a west-side recovery institution.
The exhibiting works showcase the results of the partnership.
