Clay Arts Vegas: More Than a Garden Grows in Dreams

The artists of Clay Arts Vegas (CAV) use vessels and sculpture in this exhibit to explore a garden that might grow in your dreams.  The artwork captures surreal flora and fauna. As a start to a conversation, CAV looked at Alice in Wonderland and Beauty and the Beast. Then the CAV artists got to work.

Often, when we are in the deepest part of sleep, we have vivid dreams that are connected to our creative selves.  We see the rich color of what seems like nature, but in this beauty, we also find those little surreal thoughts. The teapot that can talk and sing songs, the squirrel that jumps up on your lap and reminds you of what you did when you were ten, or the thing that lives in the shadows.  Flowers, ideas, creativity, and fears all grow in the rich garden of our minds and now grow in the gallery.

Clay Arts Vegas is a locally owned and operated ceramics studio founded in 2011 by Thomas Bumblauskas, John Gregg (emeritus), and Peter Jakubowski. They offer supplies, studio space, classes, visiting-artist workshops, and more for ceramists of all skill levels.
