Recent Works by Andrea Clark and CAVE Object

Creel-Harison Community Gallery

On display April 21 - June 2, 2023 in the Creel-Harison Community Gallery on the 3rd floor of Ware's Folly (506 Telfair Street). Opening reception is April 21, from 5-7pm. Free to the Public.


My pieces grow out of constant experimentation with ceramics and straddle sculpture and image. I treat liquid clay like paint, rocky bits of fired clay become pointillist dots, and thin sheets of porcelain act like paper. These porcelain-built images oscillate between 2D and 3D, framed by stoneware structures that often support the thin porcelain through the firing. 

Lately I’m conflating dream imagery with aspects of the Southern landscape where I was raised and currently live. I’m interested in the mutability of landscape and its ability to hide and reveal histories. 

My homeware line CAVE Object was born out of a desire to live with and use the content of the artworks. For example, the lamps and containers are mostly extrusions of flat shapes found in the porcelain images. I like to think that the pieces in CAVE Object subtly and sweetly disrupt their surroundings.
