Called To Dream


Untitled , 2015
handcrafted glazed earthenware, twigs
16 1/2 x 5 x 6 1/2 inches

Walking into a forest, one is called into another dimension by faces that peer out and silently beckon; with soundless, open mouths, a stare, a reaching hand. Here, textures and bodies morph with significant purpose, signalling invitation. I am here. I can see you looking for me, but I am invisible.

--Amy Bowles, June 2015

Terracotta and white earthenware clay renderings of garden dwellers harken back to Bowles's rural English childhood and signal an earthly invitation.
