Opening with Will Dickert

In Tandem Gallery presents 
the work of ceramicist Will Dickert

Will Dickert will be at the Gallery
 for the opening of his Exhibition
Saturday, November 3rd, 4-7pm
We hope you can be there

The exhibit features stoneware and porcelain finished with slips, shino and celadon glazes and ranging in form from functional pots and wares to sculptural pieces.
“This show is about wood firing and form,” says In Tandem co-owner Andy Palmer. “Will has a strong body of work with a combination of highly sculptural and functional qualities.”
Using a limited pallet, Dickert allows ashes and flame to paint his pieces in a natural and organic way. The ashes that fall onto his work during firing eventually melt to create a directional glaze that ranges in glossiness depending on proximity to the firebox. This ash creates rivulets and drips that run and collect on edges and lips, highlighting the forms.
Dickert pays strong attention to shape, resulting in work with a precise, tight geometric feel that counterbalances the soft, spontaneous effects of wood firing. “The contrast between these two things is what I think makes Will's work really stand out,” says Palmer. “There's a rugged sensibility attached to the highly refined shaping of his pieces.”
