Featured Artist: Mark Arnold
On View through December 31
“I am currently exploring repetition and patterns from my past bike riding experience and how this relationship can help determine subtle variations of form and surface. The jumps I built in the woods were similar to the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. The softness of nature interacting with the strong geometric forms is relevant in each piece. This show explores these ideas on functional utilitarian pottery.”
Mark Arnold is a studio potter living and working in Elizabeth City, NC.
