Artist at Work
"Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain an artist once they grow up." ~Pablo Picasso
"Art florishes where there is a sense of adventure." ~Alfred North Whitehead
"Art is not a thing; it is a way." ~Elbert Hubbard
Art is a way ~ to tell stories.
This is the story of
Corinne Cox, "Artist at Work".
HEADs are always spinning in the world of CorinneSpin.
CorinneSpin is whirling in a good way.
In 2016 gargoyles and dragons took residence in my studio. Thanks to the inspiration of a couple of art collecting friends I was commissioned to make a large gargoyle for their home. Along with that project came smaller dragons. "Dragon of Fire" was made for an invitational show called "Alabama Fire" hosted by the 2017 Alabama Clay Conference in Birmingham.
I love having my CorinneSpin ceramic art for sale in the new Kessler Gallery at the Grand Bohemian Hotel / Mountain Brook. The Grand Bohemian boutique hotels are home to The Kessler Collection galleries which feature high calibur artists from around the world. I am honored to be included with such fine artists.
I so enjoy being a member of the Alabama Designer Craftsmen, comprised of some of Alabama's best craftsmen. I will again be selling my work at the 45th annual show the second weekend in November 2017 at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
2015 was super exciting as I had 3 month long shows which allowed me a great opportunity to share my ceramic art with many wonderful people.
~ I collaborated with collage artist Provie Musso in a show at the Homewood, AL Library. The Temerson Children's Library sponsored our "librART Show" and we had a blast presenting ~ "Is It ART?" to our viewers.
~ Four Season Gallery in Homewood, AL displayed my ceramic art in a solo show. They linked me up to Talk of Alabama TV morning show where I told a wide spread audience about my Spinning Head Candle Lanterns and Raku glaze firing.
~ The Mountain Valley Arts Council in Guntersville, AL was the venue for a show of my work. The Mountain Valley Arts Council gives continous support to visual and performing artists in its gallery in their historic home and their ampitheatre in downtown Guntersville.
Whimsical and FUN, CorinneSpin is guaranteed to make you smile.
