Cheryl Newby Gallery in Pawleys Island, SC, Features Works by Glenda Taylor
Cheryl Newby Gallery in Pawleys Island, SC, is presenting the
exhibit, Inspired by Nature, Ceramics by Glenda Taylor,
on view through June 19, 2010.
Taylor began her thirty four year journey into clay after receiving her BFA in Ceramics at the University of Florida in 1976. A fourth generation Floridian, Taylor has spent a lifetime exploring the coastal regions of the Southeast. She spends time in the Keys and the Bahamas, and her love of the ocean has resulted in hours spent diving and snorkeling, roaming the beaches, and researching the abundant marine and wild life therein. From these explorations Taylor draws inspiration for her fine ceramic works of art. She has been featured on the cover of the country's most prestigious ceramics magazine, Ceramics Monthly, and has received recognition in Southern Living magazine.
Infused with rich color, each one-of-a-kind piece is masterfully formed from either terra cotta or white earthenware clay. Her intricate glaze patterning and mastery of the thrown form combine to create extraordinary and intriguing works of art. In choosing Taylor as the first ceramic artist to be represented in the twenty seven year history of the gallery, gallery owner Cheryl Newby said "the work had to be very special; the artist had to be confident in her own style. We haven't seen ceramic art like this before!"
