Summer Lights 2012
June 29, 2012
"Then followed that beautiful season... Summer. Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood." So says Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and we truly believe him. Even here, next to our big old city, the trees are filled with fireflies, the sunsets are radiant and every day a beautiful light filters in through the stained glass in the gallery. We wanted to capture this setting in our favorite medium. Clay, of course. So we set out to curate a summer collection featuring works of light interpreted with glaze. We called it Summer Lights.
The resultant display is a study in clean, soft lines. A nature's palette of whites, green pastels, and an occasional splash of water blue. Regardless of the time of day, the exhibit room is glowing.
This gorgeous selection of functional dinnerware, vases and decorative objects is currently on display at MudFire Gallery. It is the ultimate setting for finding the perfect bridal shower or wedding gift, selecting a housewarming present, or surprising yourself with a little bit of summertime joy. Stop in or shop on line. All items in this featured collection ship immediately. And gift wrapping is available. Just ask.

More About Summer Lights 2012
Featuring the radiant work of some of our favorite artists, this summer collection was curated to capture the essence of sunshine, sparkling water and breezy meadows.
We combined the diaphanous satins of Alya MacDonald's vases with the white-sand sculptural vessels of Adrina Richard, added some seashells and prickly urchins from Element Clay, mixed in some of Martha Grover's orchid interpretations in porcelain, and topped it off with Rimas VisGirdas's dancing flower ladies... to taste. There are bowls by Annette Gates and cups by Tom Spleth, jars by Ryan Greenheck, and vases by Nancy Green. And so much more. The result is fabulous. Stop by. We think you'll agree!
