Sierra College congratulates Anthony Maki-Gill for earning a spot in the prestigious Contemporary Clay Biennial at the Western Colorado Center for the Arts. His work will be on display from May 18 through June 23. Seventy-six pieces were chosen from approximately 600 entries.
The piece that won Maki-Gill this spot is titled “Contagion,” which is part of a body of work that he refers to as “Fowl Forms.” This piece was constructed in 2011 from stoneware and porcelain clays, and then fired in Rodney Mott’s wood kiln in Penryn. “Contagion” references both biologic and economic terms/concepts.
