Jayne Cluggish is fascinated by the endless surface variations of sculpting with clay. Her unique vision lead her to work first as a fiber artist and basket maker. Honed through years with yarns and vines, Jayne’s passion now informs her work in clay. Her creations begin with sculpting stoneware, exploring texture and form. As the piece emerges, she visualizes the post-firing techniques which will bring it to life. Using multiple layers of paint, Jayne applies the last step as a cold finish. This combination of materials and textures results in compelling three dimensional wall sculptures and relief tiles. These pieces have a spiritual quality which must be experienced firsthand.
Wendy Musser’s beautiful paintings, in oil and pastel, go from breathtaking bucolic as she captures the heartsong of North Carolina! With vistas of mountains, woods, and fields, these recent on-location works capture outdoors moments with stunning sensitivity. A North Carolina native, Wendy was inspired to begin painting “en plein air” in 2001. Now as an award-winning artist, she continues to find the stimulation of painting in nature to be challenging and exhilarating. Her field paintings are worked to near completion while on site. Wendy’s goal is to capture the beauty of places she has discovered, luring viewers to want to visit the very spot she painted. Don’t miss this wonderful collection celebrating the Tarheel landscape!
