Music Saves

Jun 16 – Jun 19, 2022

About the Artist      

Tim Fry works with ceramic sculpture, mixed media drawing and public art. Working primarily with clay and the themes of nostalgia and connection through music, ‘Music Saves’ invites the viewer to participate in the holistic approach of using music to heal and balance their mental health. Tim explores fundamental and rudimentary tools of production, including rolling pins, kitchen knives and household hand tools. Tim then introduces glaze, underglaze, slip, oxide, lustre and tissue transfers and fires at stoneware temperatures. The results are handmade, one-off and uniquely finished sculptures that capture the essence of vintage cassette tapes and the simpler time they were from.
