My husband and I are entering pieces into the Morean members only show in September. We are only allowed one piece person and the theme is the “Road Less Traveled”.

The Way Forward: Roads Less Traveled: 2010 Members Exhibition
Annual non-juried members’ exhibition held in conjunction with a month-long series of events celebrating member-artists, including workshops, critiques, and works for sale. This years’ members show theme will encourage artists to try something new, to submit a work of art using unorthodox or unusual materials and media, or create a piece that reflects a remote place, unusual combinations, or an innovative idea.
I am going to be submitting a status called “Cthulhu” and he is going to be submitting a wheel thrown vase in an African motif. My husband threw the vase, we thought the shape was interesting and we decided I would carve something into it.
Cthulhu is based on a creature from the writings of H. P. Lovecraft, a fantastic horror/Sci Fi writer from the early 20th century. Lovecraft is known for his surreal creatures and mind-bending story lines. There have been many interpretations of Cthulhu, this is mine.
