Essential Cargo: Explorations in Hand-Built Ceramic at Crooked Tree Arts Center

Website
  • About

    Ceramicist Scott Leipski creates work from recurring memories and an obsession with his own youth. Using hand-built techniques, bold colors, and nontraditional ceramic textures, Leipski aims to evoke a sense of nostalgia, whimsy, and the surreal. For Leipski, exploration is an essential aspect of making, and his inherent curiosity is evident in his toy-like recombined cast forms and imaginative surfaces. Through Leipski's play, past meets present to spark a shared remembrance for each viewer’s varied past.

    The art exhibit, Essential Cargo: Explorations in Hand-Built Ceramic will be on view at Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City from May 25th to July 24th during gallery hours.
