Ceramics teacher Amedeo Salamoni’s work titled Tea Pot with the Blue Dot, has been selected to appear in the Workhouse Art’s Center Workhouse Clay International Show.
Workhouse, a nationally recognized innovative collaboration of visual and performing arts, education, community engagement, historical perspective, and personal enrichment, hosts the Clay International show each year. The exhibition represents the depth and breadth of contemporary functional and sculptural ceramic artworks being created throughout the country. Ceramic artist and educator, Eva Kwong, juried more than five hundred images to select sixty pieces of art for the exhibition.
Amedeo used George School’s wood-fired kiln to help create his pot. “On one level I use the process of wood firing to create a chance element in my finished work. The nuances of the flame, the drips of ash, happy mistakes, all of this excites me,” said Amedeo.
The Clay International Show runs from August 11 to October 14, 2018 in Lorton, Virginia. The opening reception will take place Friday, August 10, 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Visit www.workhousearts.org for more information.
