SPARTANBURG, S.C. – The Sandor Teszler Library Gallery will host “Ceramics,” an art exhibit by Logan Wannamaker through May 30 in the Sandor Teszler Library on the Wofford campus.
The exhibit contains ceramic pottery creations by Wannamaker. “The pottery I create embodies the Southwest landscape in its color, texture and material,” he says.
Wannamaker believes in connecting the viewer with his creation. “I use flashing slips and the atmosphere of the kiln in order to integrate the viewer with the connection between the pot and its composition. The flashing effect enhances the natural patterns predominant in the weathering of an old barn door or the sedimentation of a large slab of sandstone. Texture is of equal importance in my pottery. The majority of the textures on the of firing enables me to recreate the natural patterns and hues of erosion and sedimentation that make the natural landscape so beautiful. I am trying to recreate in a few days what might have taken the natural world eons to create.”
There will be a reception honoring the artist on Saturday, April 12 at 6 p.m. The gallery and the reception are free and open to the public. For more information, call 864-597-4300.
