Surfing with Helen Bates - Mostly from "The East" - January 8, 2005

Hello all,

Here are half a dozen more sites for your delectation...

Maori Ceramists (Tinakori Gallery) (Wellington, New Zealand)
< >
Ceramic artists on the site include: works in clay drawing on a rich
heritage of the customary Maori art forms by Manos Nathan who has been
at the forefront of the development of the Maori ceramic movement and
is the co-founder of Nga Kaihanga Uku a Maori clay workers'
Davina Dukes' vessel forms; Colleen Urlich's pots decorated with
traditional Maori patterns; and Wi Taepa who hand builds and sawdust
fires striking vessels and anthropomorphic forms incorporating Maori
design elements. (I wish there was a greater contrast between the text
and backgrounds, and that there were more images of the artists' work.
For the former, one solution that worked for me was to use the "select
all" command which increases the contrast markedly.)

Gil J. Stein (Hacinebi, Turkey)
< >
Stein, of Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA, presents the
Archaeological Excavations of the 6000 year old site of Hacinebi
(pronounced "Ha-jih-NEH-bee"), in the Euphrates river valley of
southeast Turkey. Click on "The Excavations", "Artifacts", or
"Conservation" to view ceramics in and from the excavations.

Touching Stone Gallery (Santa Fe, NM, USA)
and The New Mexico Museum of International Folk Art (MOIFA)
< >
Japanese Tea Bowl Masterworks Exhibition (2003) Artists: Shukai
Kagami, Yuho Kaneshige, Tadashi Nishibata, Kazu Yamada, Tahara Tobei,
Morioka Kasho. (For links to other shows mostly but not all of
ceramics, scroll to the bottom of the page.)

Katherine Choy (Chester, NY, USA)
I have mentioned her before, I think...
Katherine Choy Known as Choy Po-Yu in China, potter and founder of the
Clay Art Center in Port Chester, New York, and Professor of Ceramics
at Newcomb College, Tulane University in New Orleans. (Text and a
number of zoomable images of her work.)

Elena Karina (aka Canavier) (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
< >
Her current work Karina refers to as sculptural sea-forms. She
presently works in cone 6 clay although she used porcelain clay for
many years. A tour de force!

< >

Pottery and Tile Works in Doylestown, Pennsylvania in 2002.
