Jon Pettyjohn’s “Stoneware Terrain” at Silverlen Galleries

Stoneware is the name they give the clay we use. It comes from the erosion and decomposition of certain kinds of rock. The temperatures that we use to “fire” our work is almost identical to lava as it flows out of the volcano, as witnessed recently in the spectacular eruption of Mt. Mayon. In essence we are duplicating the very same processes that form the surface of the planet. What better inspiration, how lucky are we, we get to use God’s own palette.
