Arts, Galleries, and Artists
Discover the heart and soul of the Cape as envisioned by its past and present artists. Be amazed by the vast diversity of art, enjoy the beauty of the Sculpture Garden, be creative in year-round classes for children and adults, socialize at special events, and find unique gifts by local artists in the Museum Shop. Kids can always have fun with the Treasure Hunt in the Galleries.
The Cultural Center?s mission is to increase access to education in the visual and performing arts, culture and humanities for all Cape residents, with specific concentration on youth development and professional growth. It will serve as a focal point for the community and visitors to the area interested in culture and the arts by offering instruction, entertainment and exhibition.
At Millstone Pottery, I produce both functional and decorative pieces. Each one is wheel thrown and/or hand-built using slabs, extrusion, or hand-pressed techniques. Both production and one-of-a-kind pieces are made by hand with care and attentionto detail in hopes that the recipient will incorporate them into a part of his or her everyday routines.
My interest lies in an exploration of patterns, and I pursue this through diverse methods of creating textures and glaze rhythms. Currently, my influences range from a mud-cloth wall-hanging from the Congo, to the patterns of the bark on a pine tree, to the sand ripples left by the receding tides. I never tire of the myriad possibilities inherent in clay and its infinite learning curve.
