Duncan McClellan is a well-known and widely respected artist working in glass. Using the Overlay and Graal techniques to great effect. His work has won numerous awards and is in many major private, public and corporate collections. He also has a gallery in his large industrial fortress-like studio. He was gracious enough to allow us in and get a sneak preview of the soon-to-open "Immigrant Impact" show in conjunction with the NCECA convention this week. The show is curated by Elizabeth Kowalski, and it looks great from what's already up.
This is not part of the "Immigrant Impact" show. It is titled "Golden Ribbon Vessel", and made by Jennifer McCurdy. The picture is in black and white. It was wheel-thrown porcelain, carved altered and incised. Interior surface gilded with 23 ct gold leaf. See more of Jennifer's work at: [Link]
This is one of Jennifer's Wave Vessels...also porcelain, incised.
I saw a large number of strong works in glass, by Duncan and artists he represents while making my way around the ceramics.
This is "Lotus" by Stephen Pon, pate de verre.

Again, a special note of thanks to Duncan McClellan for his warm welcome.
