Relics of the Tide: Work by Jenni Ward
(July 18th-September 6th, 2015)

Opening Reception: Saturday, July 18th, 2015  6-9pm

The Bone Series is a new line of ceramic sculpture that is focused on the remains of a form. The pieces are abstract interpretations of biological creatures that may have had fleshy fins, flanges or appendages, and these bone structures are all that remains after the flesh is gone.  Ward imagines that these pieces might have been discovered in the natural world and are the only clues to the past of what this creature might have been. These relics have been preserved for viewing.
