Art Exhibit Brings Earth and Fire to Café Muro


By David López

Earth and fire are two of the five active elements in the Buddhist tradition. Earth represents strength, stability, and equilibrium. Fire is creativity, energy, joy, and passion. When these two elements work together, magic or tragedy happens. As in a volcanic eruption, new life emerges or ends.

On March 2, earth and fire come together in an exhibit at Café Muro, featuring various ceramic artists.

One of the indelible pleasures of working with fire and earth is creating ceramic pieces, whether they are functional or sculptural. It is a journey of exploration with infinite discovery. The choice of clay, the glazes to be used, and the heat selection are all options available to the ceramist. Other possibilities include gas, electric, and raku kilns, as well as pit, smoke, and salt firings.

Rosa Torres is a master potter, ceramic artist, and an inspiring mentor and teacher. She has helped many ceramic students meet their goals and express themselves through the mastery of technique. Rosa’s experience with the medium—and her generosity in sharing it—encourages creativity and personal development, says Elizabeth Scott. Barbara Essick appreciated Rosa’s excellent tutorage, and made a leap from plates to a more spontaneous direction. Lindsay Duval finds immense satisfaction in exploring the limits of the clay while creating abstract, rather than utilitarian, vessels. Ruth Probst finds comfort in the companionship of clay as she masters the creation of figurative objects in her work.
