Galaxies In The Making by Jennifer Rose

I have a bit of pesky surgery coming up that will keep me from doing heavy lifting in the studio so I’m trying to plan ahead.  I really love the Galaxy series that I have been working on and, since I can’t work on the wheel after next week, I’m making as many disks as possible now.  Each piece is thrown as a flat plate on the potter’s wheel and then trimmed to clean up the back.  So far I have fifty blanks to work with and half of the are already in the kiln! Soon it will be glaze-time.

I have a grouping of galaxies on display right now at the Carneal Simmons Gallery.  I hope you can make it to the summer show to see them in person.

Trump Yourself by Jennifer Rose


Trump Yourself, will be on display at 500X Gallery, 500 Exposition Ave, Dallas Texas from May 6 through May 28, 2017. The opening reception is Saturday, May 6 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. Gallery hours are Saturday-Sunday noon to 5 p.m.

Trump Yourself is a constructed environment that involves a seven-foot cloud sculpture, sixty feather boas, five pounds of imitation gold leaf flakes and Communist choir music. Audience members are invited to “Trump themselves” by walking through a shower of feather boas coated in gold flakes.  Here are a few images of the piece in progress.
