“Ink & Clay” Exhibition

It’s weird but cool to be the only jewelry maker in an exhibition at the CalPoly Pomona Kellogg Gallery. The exhibition, “Ink & Clay,” is celebrating its 45th year with the theme Art of Type. I was intrigued by the pairing of ink and clay. Works could be either ink on paper or some other medium, or clay, or a combination of the two. Some pieces have a narrative or social/political theme, while others are purely aesthetic. You can see award winners here.

I wasn’t sure that jewelry, let alone polymer clay, as opposed to ceramic clay, would be accepted. Much to my delight it was. My work is quite dwarfed by sculpture, hanging installations and large 2-D work. The exhibition committee was nice enough to send photos of my work in context because I didn’t get a chance to view the exhibition in person. It’s up till November 18 if you happen to be nearby.
