Kirsten Vogelius, a potter, is exhibiting in the main Hall Display Case at the Highland Park Public Library from July 1 through July 31, 2016. Her display, Ceramics from Nature, features work inspired from natural elements, bark, seashells and wood.
According to the New Jersey potter, the experience of taking a lump of clay and forming it to something functional is magical.
“I love experimenting, combining new and old techniques, materials and forms, but I favor the mid-century Danish style, myself being a mid-century Dane,” Kristen said. “Nothing is more exciting than opening a kiln or pulling a piece from a hot fire—and seeing the magic—or disaster!”
