"Botanical & Bugs Ceramic Tile in Green Ochre"

Ceramic Wall Art

Created by Beth Sherman
this item has not yet been reviewed  
Plants and insects, with their gloriously complex forms and colors, inspire Sherman's sculptural designs. This original low relief design is sculpted out of modeling clay. From the original design she made a plaster mold, into which I poured slip. After bisque firing the piece, she then applied low fire glaze and re-fired it. There is a wire on the back to hang it on the wall on the inside or outside of your home, or it can be set into a tile installation as a center piece tile.
Dimensions: 16.0in H x 6.5in W x 1.0in D
This piece ships on or before: Thu, Apr 24, 2014

About this Artist

Beth Sherman

"I have a fascination with and love for the alchemical nature of ceramic glazes in all of their lushly colored, organically textured glory. I believe that ordinary household objects are elevated in their presence and beauty, rendered in the richly tactile medium of ceramics and ceramic glazes. "

The subject matter of Beth Sherman's work is primarily informed by her reverence for the beauty and integrity of the natural world, and her sadness for its precarious state. After many years of making art that was personal and idiosyncratic, Sherman developed a strong pull to create art objects that were useful and accessible, and that contributed to each home being a sanctuary.

Beth Sherman creates her work using a process called slip-casting. She first sculpts the original design out of modeling clay. From this original design a plaster mold is made. Slip, which is clay in a liquid form, is poured into the plaster mold. The plaster absorbs the water out of the slip, and once the slip becomes solid, it can be popped out of the mold.

As a university art major, Beth Sherman focused on painting. After graduating, she discovered metalsmithing and ceramics at the local junior college. Working at a small tile shop hand painting tiles, she learned the process of slip-casting as well as how to use a tile press and apply glazes. As part of an art community and a farming community, Beth is stimulated by the botanical world and fellow artists.
