Laura Cooke, a talented ceramicist from Asheville, North Carolina and Eva Magill Oliver, now a Greenville local, have teamed up once again to create an incredible collection of ceramics.
Cooke shapes the pieces of pottery while Magill Oliver uses original stencils to form the organic shapes glazed on to each one. Each vase, platter and cup are handcrafted with thoughtful care to each artists vision and style. Read below for their joint statement on this collaboration.
“We have such a respect and love for each other's creations. We wanted to combine the 2D visual art with the ceramic process to create an object of beauty and in tandem serve a function and quotidian purpose.
We wanted to create designs for this collaboration that were strong and organic and most importantly that complimented and highlighted each other's artistic vision. We love the idea of marrying visual art with the utilitarian art of ceramics. Including well crafted designs and objects into everyday life is an important practice everyone should embrace and celebrate.”
Please join us THIS Friday and Saturday to see and collect these incredible pieces. Saturday from 10 - 4, both Cooke and Magill Oliver will be here to answer questions and chat about their craft. If you are not local, we will have their pieces available through our online pop-up shop Friday and Saturday.
