Lynne Meade's ceramics are wheel thrown and hand carved or hand pierced. Everything is done by eye, without molds or templates. She keeps to a simple color palette to avoid the toxic metals in many clay colorants and to let the intricate design speak for itself. The straight lines and undulating curves in architecture and nature imbue her organic, geometric forms.
The mid-century modern pierced collection explores the play of light and shadow, transparency and inner space. The carved collection offers a unique interplay of texture and proportion found in Chinese porcelains. Her work pushes the boundaries of function vs. art.
How little clay can express a vision? What is the perfect balance of delicacy and strength? Will the design stand the test of time?
