November 25th Members Meeting

“Sacred Frisky” with Ceramist Caroline Allen

The Ventura County Potters' Guild is pleased to welcome Ojai artist Caroline Allen. Recently retired from UCSB, Allen is a multi-media artist who’s worked mainly as a painter and writer but has had several intense periods in her life of being a ceramicist. The latest incarnation of her ceramicist self occurred last year after a frightening fall down some stairs and before her last year of working as a literature and creative writing teacher at UCSB’s College of Creative Studies. She found her way to a ceramics studio and sensed that her mind and body needed to work in clay. Immediately her hands started producing figures of women and animals, sometimes separately, sometimes configured as a woman riding an animal. She became interested in sgraffito and the women and animal imagery, along with plants and bees, continued to appear. She sees it as a subconscious message to celebrate the creativity at the heart of nature, to get back to a primal state of oneness with animals and plants and mother earth. The work came before the interpretation though and viewers are welcome to see what occurs to them. Please join us for this show and tell of Allen's journey.

All are welcome.FREE
