Two Artist Join CLG as New Season Opens
Crimson Laurel Gallery opens its doors for the 2016 season in our new location in Micaville, and we are pleased to have new work by artists Mike Jabbur and Christian Bruun to welcome you.

“form·ality” by Mike Jabbur aims to take the quotidian and turn it into the sublime with forms that go beyond their utilitarian functions. His porcelains enhance the existing breaks in the day by elevating modest endeavors like afternoon coffee, meal times, or drinks with friends. By means of the functional vessel, his work discusses human interaction and shared experience, highlighting events that simultaneously enrich lives and celebrate the positive aspects of being.

We also welcome Danish artist Christian Bruun, whose work combines the traditional potter’s methods with a sculpture’s artistry. The details of certain pieces are derived from the earthenware tradition, but are carried out in porcelain. His work includes hand-thrown porcelain tableware to large-scale interior works of art. Bruun is known in Denmark as one of the best throwers in the country for the very thin, soft, hand-thrown white porcelain he produces. His limited edition wood-fired porcelains are hand thrown and are created in Denmark at the Guldagergard center. Bruun’s large stoneware jars are made in Vietnam, where he can access very large wood fire kilns (which measure 50,000 feet, cubed!). These large pieces are gracefully at home both inside and outside.

Bruun’s work is carried in Museum of Modern Art in New York as well as the Louvre in Paris. His work is also on permanent display at both The Danish Design Museum and Ceramic Clay Museum in Denmark.

We hope to see you at our new Micaville location as we welcome all of our artists to our new space!

Friends of the Crimson Laurel Gallery,

In our last update, we only gave you a few details about Andy Palmer, our new gallery director. He arrived in Bakersville a couple of weeks ago and is putting the finishing touches on the gallery for Thursday’s annual Spring opening. When we hired Andy, we got a nice surprise and a little more than we bargained for. More about that later.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Nicole Aquillano inside her studio in Boston, MA. We all admire her pieces at Crimson Laurel Gallery on a daily basis and it was such a privilege to chat with her in person & be walked through her process.
