Gordlandia: The Ceramics of Gordon Bryan
November 18 - December 31, 2023
Curated by Louisa Gloger and Elia Haworth
Gordon Bryan’s vessels and sculptural works play with texture and forms from nature with layered glaze applications. His terracotta and stoneware pieces reflect pre-industrial ceramics and an interpretation of the ancient cretaceous period when flowering plants thrived on Earth. His ornately embellished floreros and vessels offer a glimpse into the dream world of geologic time. Bryan earned his BFA in painting and sculpture from the University of California, Berkeley, studying under Elmer Bischoff and Sidney Gordon. In 1982, he established his ceramic studio, Blue Slide Art Tile, in downtown Point Reyes Station. He became known for his highly original, artistic, and finely crafted tiles and murals that married art and function. Today, he creates hand-built ceramics that express both the imagined and the real and explore a balance of interior and exterior life.
