"Inspired" Exhibit

"Inspired" Exhibit, Kipp Gallery, IUP, February 5- April 4, 2011. High School Art Teachers and Students exhibit their best works. This is the work of Alyssa Trocki, senior art student at Deer Lakes High School. She's been making ceramic art for four years and hopefully will continue to do so after she graduates.
"Ruffled Platter"- Alyssa Trocki, earthenware, layered under glazes and glazes. Multiple firings.

I'm going to leave this picture sideways, simply because if you know Alyssa, this is perfect. Free glaze test to you if you can name where this ceramic installation is located...leave it in the comment section.

Commissioned cake plate, created in November by Alyssa. She is a big fan of Amaco Majolica glazes.
"Tube Sculpture" was juried into the National K-12 Ceramic Exhibition last year. Alyssa and her family travelled to Philly to see the exhibit and experience the gallery scene!

As a teacher and artist, it is very heartening when the ceramic community and higher level educational institutions provide exhibition opportunities for young artists. Standard Ceramics just informed me today of an exhibition for young ceramic artists at the Clay Place in Carnegie, PA in April. Hope to see you all there to meet the tomorrow's big name artists!
