WABI SABI & THE FLOW
Carl Block & Billy Ray Mangham
February 12 – April 2, 2017
opening celebration: Sunday, February 12th, 4-7pm with entertainment by Mariachi Quetzal.
Block & Mangham are both known for their own character and for their fun very talented individual approach to ceramic work.
Carl Block has been nationally known for his face jugs for many years and from this he adds all kinds of work that represents his love for terra cotta, colorful glazes, chickens, faces, eyes, platters, and his membership in the Independent Order of Oddfellows.
Billy Ray Mangham has a huge following for his pottery, dry wit, and colorful character. We saw his life size busts and were bowled over! He has created a series of Texas Blues musicians for this exhibit that is stunning in skill and beauty!
These 2 meet many years back as they studied at North Texas University. They are close friends and both true Texans in every sense of the word. They share esthetics and friendship. We admire them individually, as friends, colorful characters, and the fun they have in creating is obvious.
