Claymakers Gallery in Durham, NC, Features Works by Luba Sharapan, Erik Haagensen, and Dow Redcorn

July 10, 2012

Claymakers Gallery in Durham, NC, will present the exhibit,  ALTnRDU: New Ceramic Work by Luba Sharapan, Erik Haagensen, and Dow Redcorn, on view from July 20 through Sept. 15, 2012. A reception will be held on July 20, from 6-9pm.

Claymakers is very excited to present the work of Decatur, GA, potters Luba Sharapan, Erik Haagensen, and Dow Redcorn.  Haagensen and Sharapan own Mudfire Studio, and Redcorn creates his work in this great community based ceramics studio.

Work by Luba Sharapan

Sharapan’s straightforward forms, with floral decals and encaustic like surfaces are very unique and painterly, but still carry a great design for functionality and daily use.

Works by Erik Haagensen

Haagensen is known for his kooky drawings of critters, monsters, and aliens which occupy, overrun, and sometimes threaten rebellion against his no nonsense stoneware forms.

Works by Dow Redcorn

Redcorn’s intricately carved and textured pots are inspired by the forest and his Native American heritage, and each pot is imbued with extreme tactility and a story to tell.

Claymakers is a non-profit educational arts organization that promotes the joy of working with clay. It is also an arts community dedicated to pottery and the clay arts. The only ceramics center of its kind in the Triangle, Claymakers brings together students, potters and clay artists from Durham, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Pittsboro, and the surrounding areas.
