DESCRIPTION

Their individual work appears deceptively simple. Yet, with examination, the gestural complexity of Edward Eberle’s work and the utilitarian communal aspect of Peter Beaskecker’s draws the viewer to study more.


Both artists employ traditional pottery forms and techniques, but draw different conclusions to the same question. How can one deal with space?


Eberle’s forms are thrown and painted with black terra sigillata. Often he illustrates complex figures and detailed scenes, wrapping around the vessel.


Beaskecker meticulously throws individual simple cylinders and containers, but combined they create a well-balanced carrier, expressing the lessons he has learned from his travels.
