Homage: Porcelain Works, opens this fall at the Weyrich Gallery in Albuquerque, The Weyrich Gallery has been featuring the works of university students in porcelain vessels for almost two decades. UNM Assistant Professor Kathryne Cyman and invited students of the Arita, Japan Porcelain Process create new works in green and white inspired by the porcelain art of Sensei Manji Inoue, National Living Treasure of Japan. These porcelain works take on the challenges of carving and dual glaze applications, featuring local celadons and clear glazes. This showing reflects the respect and result of many creative struggles along with the love these porcelain ceramists have for the practice of this porcelain art from Arita, Japan. The University of New Mexico is where all these porcelain ceramists initially studied this art. Homage, includes porcelain works by: Chris Casey, Jon Deyhle, Raymon Gomez, Nikki Denisson, Skyler Juillard, Christina Rockwell, Evan Steegle, Casey Pendergst, Rebecca Pendergast, and Rick Orlando.
