Brian Somerville - Oz, Nashville

"I fire everything in my Medallion Artist Series 2323HE kiln."

Brian Somerville is currently the artist in residence at OZ in Nashville, TN. Somerville’s work consists primarily of sculptural animal figures that are built solid, hollowed, reassembled and then covered with images carved by hand. His beasts are often entertaining, but carry important social, political and personal meanings.

He received his BFA from the University of Evansville in Indiana and an MFA from Florida Atlantic University. He has taught classes and workshops and worked as a commercial artist for a number of years.

Marlene Serafine Gaudio - Mirthful Angel Pottery

Marlene's signature vases are meant to exalt the art of the potter. Serafine Gaudio translates from Italian: “mirthful angel,” thus the name of her studio. Her workshop is her creative sanctuary where a lump of clay is transformed into a beautiful ceramic object, utilitarian or sculptural. She employs various hand building and wheel throwing techniques in order to create one-of-a-kind ceramic vessels. She strives to express an aesthetic quality of form, incorporate complementary glazes and exercise qualitative craftsmanship. Marlene fires her mirthful angels in her front loading Olympic FL20E kiln. The FL20E's inside dimensions of 28” wide x 28” deep x 45” high, 20 cubic feet, provides ample room to fire taller pieces and a range of ware with maximum firing temperatures to 2350°F/Cone 10.

Marlene's pottery studio is her sanctuary where she seeks to honor her vocation. She works chiefly in the medium of high-fired glazed stoneware, and is a proponent of the tenet “form is meaning.”
