Marsh+2CSULB Ceramics Professor Tony Marsh has a new exhibition at the Peters Projects of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The show is entitled American Jars and Crucibles and will be running from March 23, 2018 through May 25, 2018. The exhibition at Peters Projects will premiere the newest body of work by Marsh. For this exhibition, the main forms are cylindrical shapes with surfaces that include glazes, slips, englobes, raw powdered materials, mineral concoctions and occasionally refractory cement. Marsh puts these ingredients to use intuitively with no notes and may fire the work 5-8 times. The protrusions, short shelves with fossil-like offerings, take the work back to the internal earth and its own creations over centuries of time. The artist states “There are real and imagined allusions to the physical sciences, earth formation, geographic phenomenon, force, time and landscape in my work. Ceramics is a transformational art which is dynamic in every phase of the process and I fully embrace that phenomenon. I set up conditions wherein unexpected results occur that lead to discovery which stimulates curiosity and innovation.”
