Wheel-thrown stoneware, porcelain and Raku fired plates, vases resembling sculptures and functional pieces by Michael Brailove will be on exhibit in the Main Hall Display Case at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue, June 4 through June 30.
Brailove, a long time Highland Park resident, has been using the wheel for thirteen years and firing his large plates, vases, cups, and sculptures and firing them in electric or gas kilns. He also has a number of them Raku fired.
“My early works reflect admiration for American pottery,” Brailove said. “Currently I am focused on carving and design.”
Brailove is a student of pottery at Raritan Valley Community College and commends their excellent faculty in his development as a potter and sculptor.
