a photo essay by Kelly Green
Considering her given name, one might find it ironic that Colour Maisch’s studio is full of pale hues. A touch of peeling red paint, or the bright packaging of an aging commercial product stand out amidst the mounds of clay, tufts of hair, concrete floors and discarded cigarettes that give the space at 700 south and 314 west in Salt Lake its muted tones. Maisch, who has been in the studio for close to two years, is a relative newcomer, sharing the building with welder Dave Starks and ceramicist Stan Roberts, both of whom have have been there close to two decades.
