Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to review Miriam Griffin's residency exhibition at The Clay Studio of Missoula. A collection of pinch pots and sculptures, all delicately incised with Miriam's signature, exquisite drawings in a classic blue, white, and gold palette... Miriam's work is as aesthetically pleasing as it is delightfully touchable. Her interrogation of our relationships with animals extend beyond inquiry into these wonderfully lifelike textures.
I wrote about it on the fabulous ceramicartistsnow.com, a great resource for writers and makers alike. Check it out here!
