Red Earth exhibit

An exhibit coming up at the Cornelius Arts Center will feature earthenware and stoneware works of mine from January 10-February 28th. The opening is this Friday from 6:30-9:00. I will also be teaching a short demonstration workshop from 1:00-4:00 this Saturday at the Arts Center. You can register online from the link above. 
The Center's executive director and curator, Jen Crickenberger, had this to say about the show: "Red Earth features beautiful ceramic forms and pottery created by local artist, Amy Sanders. Her pieces use textures, layers, color and form to engage the viewer with a nostalgic sense of comfort. Sanders designs functional and sculptural pieces that conjure childhood memories and portray a strong sense of femininity. Natural patters, groupings and an emphasis on her creative process of working with clay allow her work to speak volumes on nature and community."
