This show will introduce two wonderful established ceramic artists to the Santa Fe audience. Ted Saupe is a Professor at the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. Chuck Aydlett is the Manager of the Clay Business at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT.

These two artists are both obsessed with surface. Handbuilders of sculptural and functional ceramics, they seem to need to cover their pieces with tattoo-like sketches and drawings. Ted Saupe’s drawings become a stream of consciousness as he covers the surfaces of his work with people and events from his everyday life. These drawings have a sketchbook quality, sometimes right side up and at other times turned sideways or upside down. Chuck Aydlett’s drawings have a surreal and dreamlike quality, and his complex sculptures of animal forms or human figures take on multiple meanings when viewed in varied positions.
