Joanna Poag Ceramic Flourish Wall Sculptures, 2015
Contemporary American ceramic artist Joanna Poag’s Flourish wall sculptures are hand built, fired to cone 6 and glazed white to give them a lightness and more attention to shadow. Flourish looks at the growth and development of a system both healthy and beautiful. This piece is a two-fold exploration into the elegance of calligraphic flourishes and the growth and blossoming of something new and wonderful. The Flourish wall sculptures are being offered as a collection/set of 12 but can be purchased separately for $2000 each(15"L x 5"D x 6"H). These pieces ship directly from the artist’s studio in Rochester, NY. All works are accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity from Joanna Poag and/or signed by the artist. Additional pieces of Joanna Poag ceramic sculpture available through Highland Park, please contact the dealer for more information.
Joanna Poag received her MFA from the School for American Crafts at Rochester Institute of Technology and her BS in Studio Art and Psychology from Roberts Wesleyan College. She currently resides in the Rochester, NY area.
“My work explores the homeostasis of a system, and the resulting equilibrium from multiple parts self-regulating to form a whole. The multiple components of each piece make up a unified whole, creating a glimpse into a moving, healthy cross-section—a living, open system.
“The time and process involved in the creation of each piece is a meditation that is reflected in my work; there is an organic, human quality clearly visible in the fingerprinted surfacing of each piece. The renewing of life and growth in even the smallest of structures is refreshing to me and I hope my work encourages my viewers to explore the intricacies of the world in a fresh way. I continually seek to create a glimpse of the elegance of structure and order that I find so captivating.”
