Speaking in Shinos - An Exhibition of Wood Fired Ceramic Work

Historic Yellow Springs, Chester Springs, PA is pleased to announce SPEAKING IN SHINOS, a group exhibition featuring VITRA5. This unique ceramic exhibit runs from November 30th-December 15th, 2012 with an opening reception on Friday, November 30, 2012 from 7 to 10 pm. The public is cordially invited to attend in the First Floor Galleries of the Lincoln Building, 1685 Art School Rd. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday 10am-4pm, Saturday noon-4pm.

SPEAKING IN SHINOS is the second annual show for the group VITRA5 that includes Heidi Brett, Karen Ewerth, Jessica Greet, Jackie Henisee and Wendy Vedder. A collective fascination with wood firing has been their focus over the last 2.5 years. This year VITRA5 wants to show the beauty in the Shino glaze family and explore how Shinos respond in the mysterious atmosphere of the wood kiln. Using the common language of the Shino glaze each ceramic artist brings their own voice with surface decoration, incorporation of other cone 10 glazes and carving techniques. This rugged wood fire process, the warmth of the Shino glazes and each "voice" of the potter is captured in a video presentation.
