This Week’s Theme: Plates

While primarily an abstract paintersinger-songwriter, and writer, Miranda Aisling, also delves into other creative activities. She made this ceramic plate and painted it with her interpretation of an ancient Greek-styled pattern. In checking out her web site, I love her appreciation for trying new creative projects and her enthusiasm for community-based art.

About her exploration into ceramics:

Ceramics is an art form that was developed many times by many different people.  Cultures from almost every continent, time, and description discovered some way to use clay.  I decided to research and experience this development in my senior project.  To do so I chose three cultures, the Mimbres Native Americans, the early Greeks, and the Jomons from Japan, which were separated by land, sea, and time.

About herself she states:

I was fortunate to find out very young what I am passionate about. I was sixteen, a junior in college, and halfway through my BA in studio art when two things happened.

1.) I decided that my life goal was to open an art center.

2.) I went to El Salvador to make a mural with Claudia Bernardi and discovered the world of community art.

Happy Coloring!
