  ROB FROESEUnidentified Objects

May 18 – June 11, 2016
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 21, 2-4pm

Rob
Froese makes clay objects of visual and tactile interest, for use and
contemplation, using a variety of clays and kiln firing methods.

A focus of his utilitarian work has been to explore light and dark
contrasting layers in clay body, slip, and glaze, working with an
immediacy and responding to the flow of actions and decisions that take
place during the many stages of production. His process of making
sculptural objects shares that aspect of ‘chance meeting choice.’

In this exhibition clay objects are presented that evoke nature, time
and contemplation; carrying the feeling of a found object from the
natural environment.

Rob
Froese is a contemporary ceramic artist working in Canada and Japan.
He earned a B.A at the University of Saskatchewan in 1987 and a B.F.A
Ceramics at the University of Regina in 1994.

His work is included in the Saskatchewan Arts Board Permanent
Collection, the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery, and private
collections in Japan, Canada and U.S.A.
