Frank Vickery, a master at ceramic art, will be the Featured Artist during June at the Asheville Ceramics Gallery in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. There will be an opening reception with Frank during the 2nds Saturday Event in the River Arts District, June 9 from 4-6 PM in the Phil Mechanic Building gallery, 109 Roberts Street. Refreshments will be provided. Come meet the artist and admire his virtuosity in clay.
Working with clay is not a supplemental part of Frank’s life, it is an essential component of his existence. Through study, process and practice, Frank’s understanding of the possibilities of clay as a material for creation has grown far beyond just one way with clay, so to speak. As the Director of Ceramics at the Bascom Center for the Visual Arts in Highlands, NC, Frank relishes the opportunity to work in every type of firing process and forming methods as he teaches and creates. He maintains a studio at the Bascom as well as his home in Glenville, NC.
On view at the Asheville Ceramics Gallery just for June, Frank’s pieces range from Horsehair Raku technique where horse hair is burned into the clay and leaves a magical mark, Crystalline glaze with large crystals shimmering on the surface and functional works fired in several types of kilns.
