Edina Art Center presents a diverse group of eight clay artists who create pottery in Minnesota and use a basic, everyday material, Baking Soda. Typically, baking soda is used in the kitchen for recipes, as a household cleaner, toothpaste or deodorizer. This group of potters uses this material as a glaze element, sprayed or dumped into the kiln during the firing. This material creates a “soda cloud” atmosphere that interacts with the clay, flashing slips and glaze surface. This atmospheric effect replaces conventional glaze methods and allows the subtleties of the clay used to be a strong element in the final creation.
Many of the clay objects created by this group are inspired by the Midwestern landscape. The artist’s vessels reference the environment while still being functional clay pieces. Several artists choose to use imagery in their work related to the woods, lakes, rivers and farm fields of the area. This reference is expressed through recognizable images or by using an abstract approach.
The artists in this exhibition are; Guillermo Cuellar from Shafer, MN; Andrea Leila Denecke from Scandia, MN; Dan Gardner from Egan, MN; Matthew Krousey from Minneapolis ,MN; Lee Love from Minneapolis, MN; Carolina Niebres from Prescott, WI; Marcia Tani Paul from Deep Haven, MN and Sandra Daulton Shaughnessy from St. Louis Park, MN.
