Door County artists Rebecca Carlton and Tony Staroska announce the opening reception of a “Thank You Celebration” at Juddville Contemporary Clay Studio Gallery on Oct. 15, 10 am – 7 pm.
Their first 10 years have been a great success thanks to the support and patronage of the Door County community and county visitors. This celebration is to thank all for that support.
New artwork – Garden Totems – by Staroska will be on display as well as older pieces. All artwork is for sale.
Staroska’s interest in the geologic formations of varying rock types has inspired him to create this new series of sculptures, Garden Totems. Both on the grounds and inside the gallery of Juddville Clay, visitors can see his other explorations of rocks translated into art. They include large, monolithic sculptures to small, intimate covered jars called “rock pots.” These sculptural pieces are created from hand-built and wheel thrown clay with highly textured surfaces and then salt fired. The salt-fired glaze surface is called “orange peel” due to it feeling like the surface of an orange’s peel. With the high firing temperature and glazed surface, these pieces can be left outside in our extreme winter temperatures and not get damaged.
Juddville Contemporary Clay Studio Gallery, open daily 10 am – 5 pm, is located at 8496 Highway 42 in Juddville. For more information call 920.868.2021.
