Farraday Newsome

Florabundance!

July 20 – 24 

Some handbuilding experience necessary.

Farraday Newsome is known for her vessels that are exuberantly developed with three-dimensional imagery, and sumptuously glazed with a colorful variant of the maiolica technique. Her subject matter is primarily drawn from nature, and her surfaces are vivid and painterly. In this workshop, participants will begin by constructing a sample high-relief wall tile from red terra cotta clay to be used for experimentation with richly saturated, glassy and colorful maiolica glazes by week’s end. Participants will then spend the week constructing a larger slab-built vessel form that will be developed three-dimensionally with press-molded elements and additions. Boxes, teapots, bowls and vase forms all lend themselves to the sculptural possibilities of this building method.

Farraday Newsome received her BA in Biology from the University of California at Santa Cruz and her MA in Art with a Ceramics Emphasis from San Francisco State University. Newsome’s work can be found in many public collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Long Beach Museum of Art and the Arizona State University Fine Art Museum. She exhibits and lectures extensively, is an instructor at the Mesa Arts Center, Mesa, AZ, and has served on the Artist’s Advisory Board of the Ceramic Research Center at ASU in Tempe, AZ. Farraday and her husband, Jeff Reich, own and operate Indigo Street Pottery in Mesa, AZ.

Farraday Newsome: Unseen Drift

solo exhibition featuring the decorative terracotta and majolica vessels and sculpture of Arizona artist Farraday Newsome


May 16 - July 4, 2015


Artist Statement




My home and studio are in the Sonoran desert city of Mesa, Arizona. I share my studio with fellow ceramic artist and husband, Jeff Reich.


I have worked within the format of the vessel for over twenty years, exploring ideas of lushness, sadness, time, and grace. My surfaces are very painterly. I am interested in the combination of painterly space with the actual space of the three-dimensional piece. For the past five or six years I have been glazing fields of natural and artificial objects that have personal symbolic meaning . These are generally familiar objects, such as watches, fruit, dice, shells, seedpods, eyeglasses, bones and insects. My personal narrative becomes a freeform drift open to association.


My clay is a red terra cotta. The first layer on my bisqueware is a coat of either white glaze or black glaze. This sets up a general light or dark atmosphere, and emotional intent can be developed from there. My imagery is built up by brushing multiple layers of colored glazes on top of the white or black glaze ground.

 

Farraday Newsome will have a solo exhibition titled Unseen Drift at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York, May 16th through July 4th, 2015. In conjunction with the show Farraday will be conducting a two-day, hands-on workshop May 16th and 17th.

No frost for over a month in the low desert this winter has meant a bounty of greens in the garden. Our favorite vegetable this time of year might be the pak choi. It’s so crispy and mild cooked or raw, but we really love them all!
