June WindowAlison Coaten
Three new sculptures fresh from her studio to view in our gallery window.
Hand-built in stoneware and earthenware, each sculpture has several layers of slips and glazes, with areas left bare creating surface textures then defined with inks. Coaten also uses glass eyes often intended for taxidermy. Her most recent pieces explore humankind’s relationship with animals and play with the Madonna and child images found in Flemish art and the reserve heads of Ancient Egypt.
