Caroline Blackburn Ceramics - Banham Collection - No. 1033


Caroline Blackburn, is an award winning native Los Angeles sculptural ceramic artist, who creates vessels that explore her interest in abstract painting, architecture, fashion, and nature.

Trained as a painter, her sculptural ceramic work focuses on bringing a freshness and immediacy to each piece through color, form, and surface texture. Every work is one-of-a-kind whether it is thrown on a wheel, hand built, or a combination of both techniques. While investigating an interest in form, the work produces a continual shift between surface, texture, color and object. Each vessel provides a contemporary sense of life that is very personal and universal at the same time.

Caroline has a wide vocabulary of glazes with which she uses to accomplish the intense active surface in each piece. She juxtaposes color, texture and drawing using a variety of materials to accomplish a painterly surface including ceramic pencil, slip, oxide, or glaze creating a sublime effect, reflecting phenomenon found in nature. Color plays a significant role in the work. When she glazes a work she approaches it as a canvas. She may first apply a slip, draw on the work with a ceramic pencil, and then hand-paint each piece with brushes of a variety of widths to accomplish a painterly sublime effect and finally grind the surface with a stone.
