Ceramic artist Janine Sopp creates unique pieces in her Brooklyn studio. She spent the first seven years of her artistic career designing clothing and textiles. Sopp works in a variety of techniques, with most pieces beginning as slabs. Once she rolls out each slab, she begins a dialogue with the material. The clay offers her a way to connect and communicate. Textures and patterns tell a story and carry the artist on a journey of discovery. Once the clay has dried, Sopp paints on layers of color to reveal a dance between shapes and images. Then, a dark pigment wash and satin finish complete the journey, giving dimension to each element and inviting the viewer to follow along.
