Rebecca Hutchinson's complex paper clay pieces evoke the natural world. Using a range of surprising materials, she combines papermaking and ceramics to create artworks that surpass one medium alone.
Groupings of huge hanging pods; forests of crocheted paper clay vines; and bunches of overgrown flowerlike forms that feel freshly gathered from a giant's field and hung to dry—all celebrate the "complexity of engineering" and the inexorable force of survival in the natural world. Rebecca Hutchinson is a Professor of Ceramics at UMass/Dartmouth.
This lecture is free and open to all, no RSVP required. To register for Hutchinson’s accompanying workshop, click here.
