Vessel dresses

Posted on June 27, 2011


Babs went to ArtRapids! on a perfect day and captured the perfect summer dress.  I was captivated at once.  Vessel dresses! I thought.  They look just like the ripple of Grand Traverse Bay over its sandy shore.  Who would think of such a thing?  And why am I so taken with the work?  You can, as always, click on the photo for a larger version if that will help you puzzle it all out.

As it turns out, ceramic artists Harry Welsch and Kim Wellman of Lutz Florida are the artists.  They have a photo gallery on the Florida Westcoast Ceramic Society website.  As for what makes my mind go ’round, it remains a mystery.
