SANTA MONICA, CA.- The Frank Lloyd Gallery announces the opening of an exhibition of work by three ceramic artists – Gustavo Pérez, Cheryl Ann Thomas and Beatrice Wood.

Gustavo Pérez is represented by works that demonstrate his use of an incised line. Simple, smooth, and symmetrical, his vessels are animated by elegantly geometric cuts into their surfaces. More than a container or receptacle, Pérez's work has an architectural presence. Within a relatively narrow set of parameters, the artist has found a wide range of form and pattern. He works through variations like a musician improvising on a melody, achieving unity between the structure and surface of his vessels.

Cheryl Ann Thomas presents a selection of recent Vessels. Formed through the laborious coil and pinch method, the works are then allowed to collapse when exposed to the high temperatures of the kiln. Thomas's work is frequently noted for its allusions to the transience and delicacy of existence. Although the heat of the kiln is what causes the collapse of her forms, it also gives the porcelain she uses its durability and strength. In this way, the artist notes that her work "is not a metaphor, but a real and distinct experience of creation and loss."

The gallery is also exhibiting a selection of works by renowned ceramist Beatrice Wood. These pieces are remarkable examples of Wood's signature luster glazing techniques, developed over the course of her long and extraordinary life. Her use of simple forms contrasts with the richly complex surfaces of her work. The works have the elegant presence of artifacts unearthed from an ancient civilization. Shimmering, gilded colors animate these pieces, catching the light and drawing the viewer in closer.
