Installation view of Gareth Mason: Wild Clay
Artworks left to right: Charm Field (2021), Deart Heart (2007 - 2010), Pale Body, Dark Blade, (2011 - 2013)
Acclaimed British ceramist Gareth Mason’s latest show at Jason Jacques Gallery in New York celebrates the un-tamability of the artist’s chosen medium. Wild Clay features a selection of Mason’s expressive, sculptural vessels—complex pieces, rich in form and texture, seductively wearing bits of wild clay alongside repurposed shards of pottery and droplets of gold luster. On view til August 14th.
“We love glittering things brought into being by forces beyond our ken. We want to bear witness and to know awe. Clay has this potential in spades.”—Gareth Mason
