James Tisdale’s newest body of work takes a look at the social and political issues scattered across the American landscape. Issues created from the past, follows to this day and stretch from coast to coast. James' pieces are constructed using various methods with a heavy grog white clay body. Once the form is established, the surface is then finished with several layers of under-glazes, stains, and glazes. With each added layer, the work is subjected to another firing. The initial firing is to cone 1 followed by lower temperature firings to cone 04. This process of layering colorants is used to add depth to the surface and a look of distress to the peace.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through June 4.
