Work on display includes new fine art porcelain sculpture.
About Cary L Weigand: A sixth generation Hawaiian, Cary graduated from the University of Hawaii with a Masters of Fine Art in Ceramics and relocated to Central Oregon in 2004. Since she graduated she has eagerly pursued the path of establishing herself as an independent ceramic artist. Her major interest in figure modeling expands both the use of ceramic techniques as well as explores some relatively neglected areas in content. Inspired by the loose slab work her figures evoke a sense of mass in contrast to the loose and flowing slab work of drapery and body appendages. This formal device provides an important ground for the content of her work, aimed at a search for a contemporary spirituality. Working with earthenware or porcelain, a figurine is worked upward slowly allowing each layer to dry. Then it is painted with Terra Sigilatta, wood ash, overglazes and fired. Next is applied a variety of stains, paints and sometimes wax. Each piece builds a bridge connecting Cary's psyche with the physical realm.
For nationally known artist, Cary Weigand, ceramics is a very humanistic and tactile experience. Drawn to Asian philosophies and Shamanism she finds they both focus on awareness of mind, spirit, and environment. The figure represents a vehicle of humanity. Cary's work is an expression of the subconscious and symbolism. She states: “In this way, I seek to look deeper within myself. I look upon each piece as that something which beckons the impenetrable shadows of madness, or the liquid flow of existence, day after day after day, (Or maybe this heart...) a wild beast caged within its chest, dreaming a dream which we've already seen unfolding before us, (time and time again.) Cary's original artwork including her fine art porcelain sculpture is available exclusively in Central Oregon at High Desert Gallery.
