October 2007: Bruce Fontaine Ceramics

Bruce Fontaine: “Bruce-Kebobs” “These clay sculptural forms are a mix of random and thematic compositions, skewered onto steel rod armatures in a shish-kebob fashion and representing a variety of expressions by the artist. I am using the concept of totems as a means of drawing the attention of the viewer.” Bruce Fontaine, an Oregon ceramic artist, mixes sculpting with pottery throwing techniques to create works that are “urban folk art.” His style is influenced by ancient, indigenous and contemporary sources.
