For his first solo show with Studio Tashtego, Maschinot pays homage to the surrounding trails of the Hudson Highlands, his frequent escape from the city. This show will unveil several new designs alongside select past designs in a variety of glazes and surface treatments. Maschinot's signature focus on geometric symmetry will be juxtaposed with a new body of work comprised of free-flowing sculptural elements that reference the natural world.
Maschinot's body of ceramic work spans vessels, furniture and lighting pieces. His distinct style is characterized by a deep interest in meticulously carved motifs, often referencing ancient pottery. These designs imbue the form with both texture and pattern. Maschinot delights in revealing his pieces' handcrafted nature; even his most mathematically considered designs possess a subtle wabi-sabi element that allows the integrity of the clay to play in the background of the overall composition. His detailed and meditative works are a formal practice in the art of slowing down.
Opening Reception: Saturday September 24th, 5-7pm
Exhibition Dates: September 24th - November 27th
