Beyond Function: The Ceramics of Judith Salomon

Judith Salomon, 1990 Cleveland Arts Prize for Visual Arts, creates slab-built functional ceramic vessels. But function isn’t her primary focus. She stated in a 1978 Plain Dealer article, “I’m concerned with their being useful, but I think a good pot shows an expression of who made it. There’s something that catches the eye, a feeling for it.” Her work is inspired by her love of architecture and suggests the idea of sculpture. Brightly colored geometric forms develop a patchwork aesthetic reminiscent of De Stijl or Russian Suprematism. However, with the form of the works emphasized over the use of the pieces, they become distinctly postmodern.
