Introducing Rhonda Uppington: Show and Sale 2016

5 Dec

I am drawn to the minutiae in everyday life, the delicate details created by the hand of man or Mother Nature that, in our hurried lives, are overlooked by many. I strive to create detailed works that will entice the viewer to pause for a moment and move in closer for a better look (or touch!).

Tatted daisies, textured paper, pressed leaves . . . small things leave their impressions on me and it is those small things, the detritus of my life collected in boxes and between the pages of books, that find their way onto my collagraph plates and are preserved in the resulting impressions on paper or clay. Through carving plaster and linocut stamps, I leave my personal mark on the clay surface. Nature is a constant theme and leaves, flowers, birds and butterflies unify my work.

Find a selection of Rhonda’s ceramics at the Toronto Potters Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). FREE admission and parking.
