Randolph Arts Guild Hosts Exhibition
During the month of July, the Randolph Arts Guild will be hosting an exhibition by Randleman artist Joseph Sand.
The exhibit will open with a reception on Tuesday, July 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. and will be on display in the Guild's Sara Smith Self Gallery in downtown Asheboro until July 26.
Joseph Sand trained as a sculptor at the University of Minnesota, receiving a bachelor's degree in fine arts in 2006.
During his undergraduate courses, he studied for one year in Italy, followed by another year in England after receiving a very competitive, college-wide scholarship.
While in England, he worked alongside many prolific potters, including Svend Bayer and Clive Bowen, which heavily influenced his direction as an artist, taking up functional pottery as a means of personal expression.
His work combines the styles of traditional, Southern alkaline glazeware and East Asian design, among others.
Using two wood-fired kilns, both salt- and ash-glazed wares are produced, ranging in size from very large sculptural vases to planters and a variety of beautiful, functional tableware.
Joseph Sand Pottery is located in Randleman, where Sand now resides. For more information visit www.jsspottery.com.
Admission is free.
