Artist's new exhibit explores glass and ceramic sculpture
RELEASED: January 31, 2008
DANVILLE, KY—Graduate assistant Jeremy Lampe's sculpture combines glass and ceramics in a way that reveals their softer, more malleable beginnings and blurs the lines between organic and industrial forms. Lampe's exhibit opening is Friday, Feb. 8 from 4-5 p.m. in the Jones Visual Art Center's Aegon Gallery on campus.
In his exhibit of 30-plus new pieces, Lampe's goal is to dissect each of the materials and manipulate them in a way that reveals the process of their making, as well as their plasticity and fluidity. He says he wants it to be evident that at one time these forms were soft and malleable before the process rendered them solid.
"I have trouble keeping things on the shelves," he says of his work at the gallery. "It's amazing."
Raised in Kirkwood, Mo., Lampe received an associate's degree from Meramec Community College and his BFA in ceramics from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. While attending SIUE, Lampe apprenticed as a production potter and assisted glassblower Tony Cray.
