Trace


We've arrived! The end of the road, the final destination, the light at the end of the tunnel, the MFA exhibition. The work has been selected, the shelves have been hung, the pots labelled and the food prepared. Tomorrow night we'll open the gallery doors and welcome our friends, family and the public to garner their own opinion of what Robin has been working on the last three years. But more importantly to celebrate with us, his hard work and chosen focus.

Trace, is the name of the show. It represents an investigation of the mark making potential of soda firing. The process involves both consideration of form as well as the spaces left between the forms during the loading. These two specific aspects determine the flame path, thus resulting in a record of flame patterns, or otherwise a sign or mark or other indication of something having existed. So we invite all curious folks, to come out to the opening to see just what went on during the countless soda firings Robin tended to this semester.
