Displays & Exhibits @ the Library!

The Livingston Public Library is always looking for new collections to display in the library.  For more information on how you can display your collection, check out our website here.

Here is what Adult Services Librarian, Archana Chiplunkar, has to say about our exhibit for the month of December 2018: 

This month Carla Horowitz of The Clay Cellar in Riker Hill Art Park, is displaying her handcrafted stoneware pottery. Horowitz’s work has been influenced by nature, dance, and her more than three years living in Japan. She creates wheel thrown and hand-built pieces that are both functional and decorative. Her shapes are often altered and textured, and she has become known for platters and bowls made using a variety of leaves.

“Bakers, pitchers, tea pots, mugs, and bowls are just a few of the items that enhance everyday meals,” says Horowitz. “I love that what I create in my studio goes into someone’s home and establishes a hand-to-hand connection with the user. The journey of each piece continues once it leaves my studio.”

Besides the dramatic leaf pieces, she also produces crocks, garlic keepers, and canisters that make a kitchen more functional, and her vases, goblets, and mini pots make any table more festive.

The Clay Cellar emerged from an actual cellar into a storefront pottery in Montclair’s South End Business District, traveled to Doubletree Gallery of Fine Art and Contemporary Crafts in Upper Montclair, then on to the Riker Hill Art Park in Livingston, NJ.

Throughout all its transformations, the challenge Carla says “ has always been to produce high quality work that still fits the goal of creating unique, functional, and affordable pieces.”

Horowitz is a member of the Potters Guild of New Jersey and the Riker Hill Artists Association. She offers classes at the Art Park and at the Montclair Art Museum. For further information, go to www.theclaycellarpottery.com.
