Tempest1219When something good is about to happen, it is too hard to keep it a secret.  It is especially difficult when unique artistry like that of Karen Pierce and Marc Jenesel has already been delivered and is now on display.  I just couldn’t wait to tell you about the Pierce-Jenesel team’s clay and fiber vessels before the media get word. Yes, we are purposely “letting the cat out of the bag” because their amazing mixed media vessels, made up of clay and organic materials, should be under this year’s Christmas tree. 

BlogCitypark54x181Marc is the clay artist and has perfected his technique for rich colors, unexpected textures and flowing shapes. His wife, Karen, spends hours and hours intricately weaving natural grasses and reeds to top off Marc’s raku for an exquisite treasure. Much of their combined work includes brass coins, shells from the sea, and little jewel accents like chalcedony and carnelian. The combination of these and other materials is a feast for your eyes.  These beauties are not inexpensive but worth every penny and guaranteed to make a beautiful gift from Santa.
