A Whale of a Show, Larry Carnes is Back in Town!

March 27, 2018

This is Larry Carnes’ transition show.  He has relocated to Northern California but will be showing ~40 pieces of sculpture and pottery in Sacramento. 

The inspiration for this group started with a dream about making a big whale and having a herd of horses on its back.   It began with 3 or 4 and then a few more and then new ideas for shapes of whales developed.  The largest of the whales is approximately 34” in length. 

 In addition to new concepts, Larry is featuring new glazes in variations turquoise and white with texture from smooth to rough. 

A master in clay work, he contends that mica is the primary ingredient and provides a rough surface texture.  This show will also include some of his work with native Chumash symbols, some figurative pieces, and Toucan bowls.  Altogether the show will encompass some traditional and some brand new ideas.DSC_0147
