May Guest Artist Lynne (Otter) Berry, Cazenovia, NY
Lynne was trained in the basics of ceramics at SUNY Oswego under Richard Zakin and Austin Blake and received her BA of Fine Arts in 1971. She furthered her ceramic studies at Syracuse University and Clayscapes Studio in Syracuse. Lynne was a founding teacher at the Oswego Community Art Studio in Oswego and also the first pottery teacher at the Chenango Art Council. In 2008, Lynne received Best of Show at the CAC members show and had a one woman exhibit there in 2009. She has been in numerous pottery shows around NYS and was a member of MIC for a couple of years in 2005 and 2006.
Ms. Berry says "the potter who most influenced my current work is Sallie Thompson of Eldridge, NY who encouraged me to use the creative process of hand building to make a personal design statement. All of the work (you will see at MIC) was formed from slabs, making use of handmade impression tools and appliqués for decoration." She also said "clay is among the oldest yet most timeless of human technologies. No other medium provides us with the means to turn a few pennies worth of mud and a little bit of heat into something that can be used for generations and survive for millennia. Clay is a quintessentially female endeavor, dating back to the time when women made mud-lined baskets which prompted the development of ceramics in primitive cultures." Please join MIC in welcoming Ms. Berry during her guest exhibit during the month of April.
