After working in Manhattan, running a farm in Wisconsin, and owning a restaurant in Salt Lake (remember Brumbies?), Karen and Paul Gladstone have retired and discovered the joys of working in ceramics. Karen, President of Clay Arts Utah, and her husband Paul, both work in clay but their styles illustrate the broad range possible through the medium. Watch Karen as she throws clay at the potter’s wheel to create a functional vessel while her husband Paul pinches and bends his raw materials into branching, organic forms. Both artists will have pieces on display in the Clay Arts Utah Show, Biomimicry, opening on March 15 at Art Access.
