New Work: Ceramic sculptures by Eva Hild; and Prescience: Ceramic Sculptures by Jeremy Jernegan 

How does she do it? Her name is Eva Hild, she's from Sweden, and The New York Times calls her 'a new star in the ceramics firmament a creator of astonishing sculptures." Such high-flying rhetoric is rare in the earthy world of clay sculpture, a medium rooted in the craftwork realm of pots, crocks and platters. Here Hild demonstrates a mastery of forms that defy the usual limits and look too ethereal to be real, recalling the sensuous curves of Brancusi and Georgia O'Keefe while inviting no end of speculation about her technique. Paired with the more familiar if no less provocative works of Jeremy Jernegan, the result is a stunning show that has a lot to say about the brave new world of clay. — D. Eric Bookhardt
