Lawrence Rudolech

Website
E-Mail
Bio: A native of Madison, Indiana, Lawrence Rudolech has spent most of his life admiring and studying the simple and natural beauty of southern Indiana's countryside. Larry credits the Boy's Club as instrumental in cultivating his young artistic career. They provided him with his first oil paints and introduced him to Mr. Lou Knoble, who would be his high school art instructor and the driving force behind Larry's artistic career. Larry attended The John Herron School of Art in Indianapolis with plans for a career in Graphic Design. Larry has worked in all the facets of commercial art and ran his own freelance design and illustration company. Larry did not take his fine art career seriously again until the late 1990s when he became a member of the Madison Art Club. In 2001 he entered and was accepted into his first Hoosier Salon Show. Larry has had work in this prestigious show every year since and has won numerous awards. "Why I paint I'm not sure and I have often wondered why anyone would even bother to paint at all. One thing I have come to know, is I can't stop trying to express to others what it is I see maybe even more, feel when I gaze on a site as simple as a road covered with an an early morning fog. I don't think I see anything different than what others see, I am just trying to make sure they don't realize that it is only with God's blessing that I am able to see sometimes more with my heart than with my eyes. So maybe that is why I try to use my brush to express what others may be able to put into words. I also don't think I need to paint every detail, nor do I want to. Because I am not really dealing with what is in the painting, as much as I am dealing with the emotions I am feeling at the time I am painting it. That is why I feel my work is only successful when I feel more coming from it, than what I see coming from it."

Richard James Studio

E-Mail
Bio: Ever since my first experience with wood firing, I developed a close connection with its ideals, process, and philosophy of asthetics which mirrored my own ideas about life as a whole. Wood firing is a very labor intensive process, taking three times longer than any other form of finishing pots. The risk to the work is also multiplied three fold. But the reward is beauty and truth imbued into the clay that is one hundred times that of any other process. As an artist, I can only manipulate the variables under my control to a certain level, it takes the touch of something elemental and powerful, something without consciousness and working in conjunction to make great art. I don't astrive to control the life of the fire, but to create a dialog with it that is recorded in the soul of the clay. Much of my work does not "match the sofa" or feel smooth to the touch like a prefabricated cup. I make this trade off in the hope that my work will keep giving inspiration to the owner long after the newness is worn off, that it will be work that reveals something new periodically over time, like a good friend.

Utilizing a torch I melt clear and colored glass rods with which I bring life into a small piece of glass. I work mainly in borosilicate glass which has amazing properties in clarity, strength, and function. I have been working with a technique described as a compression where it allows me to compose beautiful florals with depth, clarity, and precision. As I continue working with this technique, I will learn more ways to build as well as increase the complexity of the design while always striving for a more precise and immaculate finish. I will continue to develop my studio and utilize more time working and expanding my understanding of glass. I have no doubt that I will always find new barriers to break.
