October 26– November 21, 2012
Opening Reception: Friday, October 26th, 6:00 - 8:00 pm
Greenwich House Pottery is pleased to present “Everyday Delights”, the first solo exhibition by Deb Reed in Greenwich House Pottery’s Storefront Gallery.
Deb has created a body of work that explores the interrelatedness of form, function and surface. “Much of the imagery reflects both a desired escape from and immersion in urban life—from simple plant forms to teeming communities crowding, accommodating, pushing up against boundaries. Contrasting glazed and unglazed surfaces mark property lines as do decoration and border. I hope that the work provides some respite for those who live, as I do, in a hyper-urban environment.” – Deb Reed
Since starting to work in clay at Greenwich House Pottery (GHP) in the summer of 2006, Deb has been captivated by the endless possibilities and challenges that ceramics offers. In addition to studying at GHP, she has taken classes and workshops at the 92Y, the Truro Center for the Arts at Castle Hill, IS183, Snow Farm and attended the 2009 Spring clay concentration in atmospheric firing at the Penland School of Crafts. Deb received the GHP 2010 Madeline Sadin Award. A student liaison at GHP, she is also a studio assistant and monitor in ceramics at the 92Y. Deb came to clay later in life after careers in law and in psychology. A serious amateur violinist, she loves playing chamber music with her friends.
