Damn Right I Got the Blues

June 4, 2011

MudFire welcomes a talented group of sculptors and potters for our first color-themed exhibit in the key of blue. The show features 20 artists invited from across the country. We look forward to their investigations into this most contentious of colors. Cobalt, the base of most fired blues, perhaps the ceramicists best friend? Come take a look and ponder the effects of a multitude of blues on clay.

This exhibit was on display June 4 through July 30 of 2011.

More About Damn Right I Got the Blues


Blue is perhaps the most emotionally established color family by right of its distinctly American musical genre. Yet we find the varied shades of blue a bit more nuanced than the immediate impression. Blues can be calm and melodic as waves crashing to the shore, loudly raucous on stage, uplifting as the sky on a sunny day, or serve as a signal for Nighthawks to gather when cutting through the night with neon.

Blues are also one of the most widely discussed colors amongst collections of kvetching ceramicists, with opinions and affections as varied as the shades of our subject color. Cobalt is an extraordinarily cooperative colorant that sings out of the bright heat of our kilns. From historical Chinese porcelain to Delft to Wedgewood, shades of blue have drawn admirers and collectors the world over. However, the mere mention of Floating Blue, Rutile Blue, and the infamous Mother-in-Law Blue (cobalt glazes often seen on contemporary American pottery) will draw the certain and immediate ire of those who choose to stand out through more tedious efforts.

Regardless of your stance on the debate, interested parties may join us on opening night for a celebration of bluesy ceramic interpretations, and of course, for enthusiastic discussion on the place and value of the blues in contemporary studio ceramics. Bring your own soap-box!
