DESCRIPTION

Ring Things features the work of 

Tina Folks and Larry Lee.

Artist Tina Folks is a ceramic sculptor and has been working with clay for over 25yrs. Her sculptures evoke the mythologies of ancient civilizations from Egypt to the Americas, exploring both heavenly and earthly realms. Her latest "TABLETS" series examines the notion of record keeping as she uses its imagery to recall obsolete objects from our modern society.

Artist Lawrence (Larry) Lee uses elementary forms and materials to create a personal alchemy.  Through the use of archetypical images such as the circle and the starburst each piece becomes a mythic passage to individuation, integration and wholeness.
