Parker, Eddy pottery on exhibit at Studio School
MIDDLEBURY — Marcia Parker and Marshall Eddy are showing their pottery at Middlebury Studio School at 2377 Route 7 South.
The school will host a closing reception for the artists this Thursday, Dec. 13, from 4 to 6 p. m. Refreshments will be served.
Parker has been a potter and sculptor for many years. Using terracotta, low-fire clay, she pinches and coils the clay into native inspired vessels. Her whimsical wheeled toy animals and masks recall the work of ancient cultures.
Eddy, a former art teacher at Middlebury Union High School, has a broad range of artistic interests. He is a painter, printer and potter and for many years he threw functional pots on the wheel with elaborately carved surface decoration. He is showing his current series of small sculpture busts that reflect his interest in artists such as Daumier, who used caricatures as social commentary.
Both Marcia Parker and Marshall Eddy use a fine-particle clay slurry called “terrasigillata” on their work, burnished to a shine.
Middlebury Studio School welcomes the public to the closing reception and anytime to check out classes. More information is at middleburystudioschool.org.
