Press release from Asheville Ceramics Gallery:
Asheville Ceramics Gallery in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC, wants to welcome you into the cosmic imagination of Bridget Fox, the master of Mudvention. Bridget will have her creative ceramic art on display for one month as May’s Featured Artist. There will be an opening reception with Bridget on Saturday, May 12 from 4-7 PM in the Phil Mechanic Building gallery, 109 Roberts Street. This will correspond with the River Arts Studio’s 2nd Saturday event. Refreshments will be provided.
Bridget’s imaginative series are inspired by textures, patterns and unusual organisms of the natural world. Using hand building and wheel throwing, she creates a rare undersea garden of earthly treasures, cerebral concoctions and cosmic delights. Her forms range from functional brains, cosmic podling rattles, mermaid vessels and Yoni eye lanterns. Unlike any other ceramic art, Bridget Fox’s creative cosmos is glowing with her authentic expression of her spirit, connecting her and those that own her work, to the divine magical essence of life.
About Bridget Fox: Growing up in Knoxville, Bridget fell in love with art and science classes, as well as being outdoors. She received her BA in ceramic art from the University of Georgia in 1996 and has continued to grow her education by taking intensive workshops in architectural ceramics, glaze formulation, slip casting and mold making. Her persistent dedication to creating one of a kind pieces in her unique style has won her many awards.
After completing a residency at the Energy Xchange in Burnsville, NC, she decided to remain in the mountains of western North Carolina surrounded by an environment of inspiring natural beauty and an amazing creative community. Her current studio is in an old commercial mushroom factory in Micaville, NC.
