Juried Members > Bruce Murray

Media: Clay

Bruce studied with the world renowned, Marguerite Wildenhain. Ten years ago he began to gravitate toward more figurative work, mostly portraiture, while continuing to use clay as his medium.His recent work represents a sea change. It’s the culmination of 40 years of intense observation of line and color and thousands of raw material tests. Murray has made a group of trays which are equally suited to both the table or the wall, they provide nourishment for both the body and the spirit. The intense over-glazes contrast with the complex muted backgrounds and borders which, in some cases tend to offer some control over the often errant and misbehaving colors which are the life of the work
