Luscious Colors; Unexpected forms! Rick Van Dyke

Funky, crunchy, richly colored,… anthropomorphic, deeply organic, one of a kind… Do these qualities move you in a work of art?

If so they you too might be a convert to the works of Austin potter Rick Van Dyke.

We are so lucky to be the only shop in Dallas showcasing his work!  And as such, we offer a healthy sized collection – ranging from his pinch pot and coiled edges and extravagant rolled-in textures to the skeletons, bugs, and other critters that move quietly beneath the fabric of our lives.  Colors range from dark evergreens to light celadons, and rich matte aquamarine blue to cornflower.  His newest colors are beautiful garnet reds with blue peeking through at the edges.  Really have to see to appreciate.

Rick’s background interests in paleontology, reptiles, entymology, and the rearing of succulents and cacti really came together well in his ceramic work.  You can see how he’s used the textures and colors of the oceans; from ancient corals to the crests of waves and the colors of the clearest shores.  Please come in and take a look.

We’re open 11 am until 7:00, Tuesday through Saturday.  Check our classes page for info about our upcoming workshops!
