Emerge Gallery Visits with Ceramic Artist Barbara Bravo

I had the pleasure of visiting with Saugerties artist Barbara Bravo who offered a bit of insight into the creation of her tile work. Three of Barbara's tile works are included in the exhibition "Exit 20: A Group Exhibition of Saugerties Artists."

My training as a potter and ceramic artist began in 1971 when I attended the Brooklyn Museum Art School. After more than 25 years as a limited-production potter with accounts coast-to-coast, I started to move beyond the classic designs that I had become known for and explore sculpted tiles. The tile format is the perfect canvas to receive simple as well as multi-layered designs. Each new piece that I create is a discovery of new techniques that I can apply to landscapes, animal and botanical studies. I never know where the clay is taking me, but it is a fascinating ride.
