Sy Schwartz - A Ceramic Retrospective
Sy Schwartz, a long time instructor of ceramics at the Craft Center, has his ceramic works on display in the gallery. Sy is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to technique and that knowledge is on full display. The trained eye will pick up on the diverse glaze and temperature range that Sy is working across. A potter's potter, his moves and markings in the clay can be enjoyed beyond the initial aesthetic and into a commentary on the material. Softening what should be hard and plays on the interior/ exterior tension of a wall enclosing a void are just some examples of his ceramic creativity.
