If You Really Wanted to Get Me Something … Colour Maisch, Connie Borup, Darryl Erdmann

I’ve been thinking about Colour Maisch’s porcelain pieces ever since I saw them at Current Work in the fall. Not sure why. Maybe because they remind me of a philosopher’s stone (as in the Chinese Gongshi, not as in Harry Potter). I just think I’d like to look at them for a long while.

Jennifer Rasmusson was just featured in her newest solo exhibition at ‘A’ Gallery in Salt Lake City.
