The pots in "Current Works" are amalgamations of the work created by potters throughout time that has inspired Louis Reilly. Pots with a taut shape are softened by the buildup of glaze and pattern on the surface of the pieces during firing. The contrast of a structured form and soft surface has gripped Reilly's interest throughout his artistic career.
The wall tiles in this exhibition were created to record the history of the firing and reference landscape. The tiles fulfill a function in the kiln by directing and pressurizing the sodium vapor to impact the other pieces in dynamic ways.
Reilly hopes that these forms with their sugary, crystallized, and bright surfaces become companions in the home.
