New York, NY – Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present Donna Green in the Storefront Gallery. Green’s work embodies the expressive exploration of form and surface, navigating this quintessential sculptural conundrum with a subtle and delicate balance.
“Voluptuous and oozing with glaze, this series of sculptures attempt to represent a gestural and evocative manipulation of clay. The vessels are made with stoneware coils that are pressed together then scraped and pushed and poked as the wheel slowly spins. The work strives to communicate the expressiveness of the clay and how far the material can be contorted, pushing the boundaries of classical forms in a physical sense.
The sculptures are about the clay – it’s strength and malleability – and how the clay interacts with the fire of the kiln and with the fluid nature of the glaze. All pieces were made and fired at Greenwich House Pottery.”—Donna Green
