Ceramics Exhibition

Middlesex School

Cornelius Ayer Wood Gallery presents RECENT WORKS BY KRISTIE LONCICH.  Now through February 2013.

"My work is greatly inspired by the natural world around me, with a playful twist and a figural element.  In addition to working as an artist, I am also a physicist, finishing my PhD.  I try to infuse my ceramic work with my love of science and nature.  I have been flying small planes since I was a teen with wing tips over the coast of Cape Cod and other wonderful places for many years.  Much of my work has been inspired by the unique vantage point of looking out the window of a Cessna and I find that each flight brings new inspiration. I believe that the best pots are complete ones - those that you can enjoy with your eyes, your hands, your imagination, and in the case of a great serving platter heaped with the perfect dish - your belly.  I believe that a great pot should make people happy, and I hope that my work brings big smiles all around."
