“Delicate Dependencies” continues my exploration into the intricate and complex relationships we all share with the land and animals around us. Made of hand build porcelain, these pieces depict endangered and impacted species, leaves and human bodies; all meant to show that we are all connected and interdependent.

Three Realms: Land Sea and Sky
Natasha Dikareva, Malia Landis and Crystal Morey
January 26th through February 19th
1045 Sutter St.
Seeking inspiration from the environment around them, artists Natasha Dikareva, Malia Landis, and Crystal Morey are interested in the mystery, allure, grace and whimsy found in the natural and imagined world we all share.
In their own voices, each artist uses the tradition of clay to capture human emotion and catalogue ideas of growth and adaptation, the real and the imaginary, delicacy and impermanence, flight and stillness, inner and outward self.
Influenced by ideas of nature, myth, memory, and the passage of time, these artists work to understand and show the space we all inhabit. The Three Realms is a contemplation of theses spaces: the land and its interconnected dependencies in humans, plants and animals, the sea in its mysterious ecosystems and continual cycles, and the sky in its unpredictable temperament and as a gateway to infinite space.
Exhibition Dates: January 16-June 19, 2016
Lineage: Mentorship & Learning highlights the impact and importance of the teacher/student relationship. This exhibition illustrates the thread connecting multiple generations of ceramic artists from Peter Voulkos to today’s students.
For decades there has been an impressive variety and strength in California’s colleges and universities ceramic programs. AMOCA invited 25 current educators from the state to participate in Lineage. In addition to inviting the educators to exhibit their own work in the show, we asked them to identify their most influential instructors or mentors and to nominate their most promising students or recent alumni. A panel then reviewed the nominations and selected the artists to include in the exhibition. The artwork in Lineage ranges from functional to sculptural with the artists exploring a wide range of forms, techniques and narratives.
AMOCA is proud to feature the work of the past, present, and future of ceramics and education.
