      Rob Barnard: Pottery As Pure Art

      This exhibition features works of the ceramic art of Rob Barnard from the collection of Rob and Josseline Wood. In all, 39 objects span 20 years of the artist's career in this first exhibition devoted to Barnard's production. He embraces the irregular and displeasing, often developing tensions in form that are meant for the viewer to resolve. He prefers the Japanese-style anagama kiln for his wood-firings. Final results encompass subtle lusters, drips of glaze, and flashes of color that draw the eye to the vessel's surface. These forms are reductive, but also nuanced in shape, line, and curve. Barnard believes pottery is capable of ennobling daily rituals and feeding the senses.
