MAGGIE FINLAYSON AND TOM JASZCZAK

 
NOVEMBER 18 - DECEMBER 16, 2016

 Finlayson and Jaszczak each skillfully generate an approach to creating functional ceramic ware that envelops an attention to form and consideration for modern craft. Delicate accents, gestural marks and minimal geometry can all be found in the details of their work. In Finlayson’s work, natural colors are muted, and quiet subtleties are highlighted in her earthenware basins, troughs and baskets. Influenced by her long love of textiles, she incorporates patterns and the repetition of line into surface treatments for each piece. For Jaszczak’s mugs, trays and jars, “form communicates a pot’s gesture; it speaks of utility.” He combines the motions of function with the aesthetics of line and abundance of shape.
