Description

On Friday, November 1st from 5:00 – 8:00 Suzanne Zahr will feature Catherine McMillan’s ceramic donuts and Michelle William’s minimalist porcelain vessels . In support of The Yellow Wood Academy they will sponsor a $10 raffle to win a unique donut of your choice ($200 Value).

Yellow Wood Academy is a non-profit K-12 school on Mercer Island, WA serving students with individual needs in core classes, foreign language, art, music, technology, and PE.

Michelle Williams’ minimalist porcelain vessels can be read as built landscapes or anthropomorphic ceramic communities. Despite the visual simplicity of her work, her process is intricate and quite labor intensive, employing multiple rounds of firing, sanding, and smoothing to achieve a finished surface that invites touch and physical engagement.

Catherine McMillans’ stoneware & porcelain donut series was motivated by the allure of covering a large area with the repetition of a simple, almost universally recognizable object, each with its own intricacies and flaws. Donuts consist entirely of clay, underglaze, and glaze. Every piece is unique and made with love.
