Curated by Melanie Egan

When thinking of “The Suburbs” one doesn’t immediately think of creativity or cultural hubs – particularly post WWII suburbs. The usual opinion of the suburbs, at least by urban folk, is not at all flattering. There is a clear demarcation between the urbanites who are where it’s happening and the suburbanites who are left to flounder in a cultural wasteland.
Yet a lot can happen in the suburbs that falls outside the commonly held notion of “endless sprawl, a punishing commute, and McMansions.”1
After all the suburbs are far removed from the “centre” and exist on the outskirts away from mainstream influences. The fringe has always been identified with creativity, nonconformists and the unruly.
This group of artists is made up of those who grew up in the ‘burbs, some who still inhabit them, one who drives through from time to time and another who has looked to them for inspiration.

Ice Cycles

This past winter was very snowy and it was quite beautiful, even if at times cold and seemingly never ending.  It even snowed yesterday and it's May already!!  Hopefully this is the last blast from Jack Frost...
I did however make a series of plates that was inspired by the snow and changing weather patterns.  I experimented with down firing multiple times with different layers of glaze. Here are a few examples that came out of that process.  It was fun to see the results after each firing as it was a bit of a departure from my usual work.
I'm pleased to say that one of these plates was accepted into the Fireworks 2013 travelling exhibition presented by FUSION:the Ontario Clay and Glass Association.  The opening reception will take place at Sheridan College Gallery on May 31st from 7-10 pm.  Hope to see you there!
