Esque Studio : Today at Heath Ceramics.

April 11th 1-6 pm - with Andi Kovel & Justin Parker of Esque Studio, Portland, OR. Stop by and meet this talented duo and see some of their latest work based on deconstructed functional works and useful objects. The new pieces inspire connections between the function and process use to create these objects in a decidedly artistic direction.

"Our focus is on contemporary work within a technical framework. For us, craft and creating current trend go hand and hand. Our goal is to create original conceptual and content-based work. This is a relatively new idea for craft-based material, and also for the ever expanding design world. We explore the process, and deconstruct it through experimentation and play. In the studio, with glass in hand, it is all about the material. Here, being deft technicians allows us to explore the medium's forms and limitations. Transcending the materials' rules and trends, while reflecting contemporary themes, makes our work current."
