Join the members of Amapola artists’ co-op Gallery in welcoming Guest Artist Iris McDowell, a gifted artist whose functional ceramics enhance everyday tasks. Iris’ s background includes more than three decades as symphony violinist and violist.
Iris imparts a lyric quality to her clay work, elegant shapes enhanced by the application of copper leaf. Her initial training in ceramics decades ago included work with a Chinese master potter in San Diego. Her pieces combine form, rhythm and rich glazes into a striking organic elegance. The final touch is torchwork, as she carefully applies sheets of copper foil.
Ceramic enthusiasts have enjoyed Iris McDowell’s work for many years in juried shows and exhibitions. Now we have it! Come experience for yourselves at Amapola Gallery in Old Town ‘s historic Plaza at 205 Romero N.W. Gallery open daily, 10 to 5.
