ACGA ARTISTS OF THE MONTH –
MICHAEL AND CHRISTINE ADCOCK
Michael & Christine are a collaborative, husband/wife team, creating mixed media vessels. Their work is a unique blending of saggar and smoke fired stoneware vessels with a wide variety of hand gathered indigenous plant fibers, and inlaid paper collage. After the vessels have received their final color firing, the various fibers are overlaid, inlaid, and woven into the clay form. Some fibers are dyed, others left in their natural state. The paper collage work is a mix of digital prints, overlaid with real skeletal leaves, bordered with scorched bamboo.
