MAJOLICA GARDEN Ceramics by Liz Lauter

The San Geronimo Valley Community Center debuts Liz Lauter’s Tree of Life solo ceramics collection. Her recent work features elaborately embellished Arbol de la Vida candelabra forms, wall mounted sculptures and “istoriato” painted platters with narrative themes of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden as seen from Eve’s perspective. She uses the traditional Italian majolica technique of terra cotta clay, tin glaze and vibrant hand painted overglaze colors.

Liz’s clay artwork weaves threads of Mexican folk art, Islamic design, and botanical illustration into her own form of expression which is new at the same time familiar. They all meet in her Garden of Eden.

The gallery is open weekends from 12-5 and M-F from 10-5

The show opening to meet Liz is Sunday, July 9th from 4-7

Lee Middleman’s Spring Ceramics Open Studio – 2023

Lee will exhibition his high fired decorative functional vessels and new lines of crater-glazed art, ash-glazed vessels and pit-fired works.

He creates classic forms with surface textures that give the work energy and vitality. He seeks to create patterns and textures that explore the organic interplay between order and randomness as found in nature.

Lee’s goal is to pursue the interplay of shape, surface texture, ordered patterns, and random effects so that work is created that intrigues the eye and demands to be touched. Although his work is functional, it is often prized as decorative.

Museums in China, Japan, Korea, Greece, Turkey, Slovenia, India and the United States have selected his work for their permanent collections.  He has participated in three solo exhibitions, 85 group exhibitions in the USA and 48 international group exhibitions.
