Anne Kenyon, Jason Bloom Anne Kenyon’s artwork features both pastel paintings and hand pulled prints -- drypoints, monoprints and collagraphs. Some of the pastel paintings are part of an ongoing series of Florida landscapes.The prints represent a new artistic direction and are often enhanced with pastels and watercolor. Clay is the easiest way for Jason to combine his passions for nature, science, and design into individual, functional pieces of art. He strives to create pottery that will become a favorite piece to be used, examined, held, and enjoyed. Cooking and entertaining are some of his favorite pastimes, heavily influencing the pottery Jason creates. He believes, however, that functionality should not detract from a form’s beauty and design. Motivated by the setting of his home and studio near the Allegheny Plateau, he integrates the flora and fauna he encounters each day into his glaze colors and embellishments. In the end, he makes what he likes – pottery that is useful, beautiful and inspirational.
