In Tandem Gallery

In Tandem Gallery

In Tandem Gallery features ceramic artist Didem Mert and jewelry artist Linda Seebauer Hansen for the month of July.

Didem's thrown, handbuilt, and pinched forms are both fun and elegant, adding terra sigillata, underglazes, lustres, etc. to create that colorful functional surface. Linda works in a traditionally eastern method of metal forming known as Shibuichi. Traditionally, this Japanese alloy is 25% silver and 75% copper which Linda pours into ingots to create varied reticulated surfaces and oxidizes the surface from blue to red creating beautiful patinaed colors.
