Who will this week’s Vases be?
Flying in From the Ropes, IT’S Kermit the Vase and Haring’s Dance!
May the best vase win!
This raku vase, called “Haring’s Dance” celebrates the life and art of Keith Haring. Haring’s graffiti like pop art emerged from the 1980’s urban culture of New York City.
At the start of his career, he drew chalk figures on blank advertising spaces, before he was commissioned to do larger scale works. Many of his later works dealt with the AIDS crisis in the 1980’s and homosexuality.
Immediately after I pulled this vase out of the kiln, it reminded me of his work. This vase is in memory of Keith Haring, and all the amazing art he created and the good work he did in his life, and continues to do through his charitable foundation, where you can learn more about his life and contributions to the art world.
