Taken on: June 14, 2011

(Newberg, OR)Visit Cathie Jo's Website "i so enjoy doing embroidery. love combining colors and seeing a project come to life. a few things are especially inspirational to me... i've got an old laundry bag that was embroidered by my grandma years ago - exquisite lettering ("laundry") and flowers. and i use an old vintage tea towel that is stained and has a big hole... but the sweet bell pepper design stitched in tentative stem stitches and french knots makes it beautiful to me. i love the idea of infusing drudgery (laundry and dish drying) with something so pretty. and i do hope that years from now, things that i've embroidered will be stained and worn, but still bringing joy because of the charm of simple hand stitching."

(Newberg, OR) Visit Mark's Website al . che . my [al-kuh-mee] noun 2. a magical power of transmuting a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value. Alchemy is about my quest for increasingly intimate and immediate relationships between the vessels I shape and the phenomenon of fire. I am captivated by the inextricably symbiotic relationship between artisan and fire, and the uncontrolled and organic beauty of forms glazed by wood ash and fire. This body of work considers the similarity between the corporeal body and the record etched into it by the act of living, with surfaces on figural forms created entirely by organic firing cycles. I believe it speaks with apt metaphor of the communal dance between bodily experience and the marks – both visible and invisible – that remain behind as journal of our bodies’ journeys. Along with the grace and beauty inherent in the human form, the idea of the body as a sacred vessel for the spirit, and as the vessel in which the seed of life is nurtured and born resonates with the powerful labor and childbirth imagery attendant in the cycles of primitive firing techniques I employ in my work. With each firing I rediscover the inexplicable relationship between the artist and fire, and the corresponding magic in the uncontrolled and organic beauty of figural forms glazed by wood ash and fire.
