Menlo Park artist displays her carved ceramic creations

 

"Beauty of Wood Fire, Vol. 2" is the title of the carved ceramic artwork by Misako Kambe of Menlo Park, one of her creations on display at the Portola Art Gallery during April.

The exhibition includes her recent ceramic artworks produced by wood firing at three kiln sites: "Hikari-gama-kiln" in Elkton, Oregon, "Spring Valley Anagama" in Milpitas, California, and "Richard Carter Studio" in Napa, California.

Ms. Kambe begins by hand carving her artwork. Next, wood ashes are deposited on the ceramic surfaces, making various and beautiful effects.

The gallery is located in the historic Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road in Menlo Park.
