Please join us for an artist talk and casual chat with ceramist Elizabeth DeLyria and metalsmith Mary Rogers. Both are well known for their exquisite handling of materials and sophisticated, mature styles. The artists will talk about their sources for inspiration and show how they have developed their individual aesthetics. (Artist talks begin at 12:00 PM.)

Elizabeth DeLyria’s art has always been about the landscapes of northern Michigan:  its waters, rolling hills and trees. She originally used vessels as a canvas to convey landscape imagery–until her technique evolved to allow the vessel to become the landscape. She now transforms stoneware, glazes and stains into birch logs or a cairn of Lake Michigan beach stones cradling a pool of water.

Mary Rogers’ work has always focused on creating jewelry that is personal within a wearable format. The challenge of creating unexpected but distinctive works has led her to develop a palette of unusual metal choices, allowing the exploration of pattern, color and form. Rogers works with 22K gold, fine and sterling silver, as well as two Japanese alloys, which allow her to create a variety of patterns and color textures.
