Kathy Mommsen’s ceramic vessels were created while observing live dancers modeling in expressive poses in her studio. The dancer modeled for a series of 4-5 sessions so that Kathy could create the vessels from clay to vessel form to the figurative imagery fitting the form. Action and being in the moment are part of the process for both Kathy and the model. Kathy worked with three dancers for TU Dancing Company and Penelope Freeh who choreographed ‘Test Pilot’. This show is the result of a one year project that is funded by the Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
See Kathy’s blog of her process:
Opening reception: Thursday, February 2, 5-9pm.
Open studio: Saturday, February 4, 11 and 25th from noon-4 pm.
Other times by appointment Kathy Mommsen Ceramics / Northrup King Building / Dock 3
