What better way to respresent the theme of NEST than by having your whole world in the nest with you.  Beth gave us this statement on her piece for the show,  the piece  "was conceived one day as I sat looking out at a gray winter day.  The whole year just seemed that gray.. I realized the bright spots in my life, in our world, had to come from celebrating and enjoying the here inside my house/nest." 

This is a handbuilt ceramic piece using a variety of glazes, stains, underglazes, slips and the occassional hand written words. 

Measures 8" tall x 9.5" wide x 8" deep

Beth Tarkington’s ceramic pieces are handmade of earthenware clay using slab, coil and mold techniques. They are one-of-a-kind narrative works, incorporating painterly images and occasionally words. The female figure and landscape are favorite images, combined with related objects or totems. Each piece tells a story, relates an experience or relives a memory and encourages a connection between the viewer and the work. Surfaces are richly textured, sometimes carved and finished with layers of colorants – stains, oxides, slips, under glazes and glazes, applied through multiple firings.
