Joe Rohrman

Contemporary Ceramic Art - Unique Figurative

Joe Rohrman, Guest Artist

For the first gallery walk of the season, Artists’ Own Gallery presents Contemporary Ceramic Clay by Artist Joseph Rohrman, of Noblesville, Indiana. Joe has been creating sculptures, as well as functional and nonfunctional pieces in clay, for the past 30 years. During that time, Joe has explored various themes but keeps returning to his fascination with people. Contemporary Ceramic Clay is a generic cast of characters loosely based on people Joe has observed. His subjects are familiar to everyone and represent his vision of everyday life. Joe considers himself an advocate of the ordinary. His inspiration for his clay figures have always been ordinary people in everyday settings, and sometimes in quirky situations. Joe attempts to show character in an individual through exaggerated facial expressions, body proportion, and subtle mannerisms. Some of his works may have a tragic or pathetic quality, while others may be whimsical and lighthearted. Joe Rohman’s show features figurative works as well as some of his imaginative little dwellings. All works are created with stoneware clay. The figures’ eyes and teeth are white porcelain. The color is added by hand and/or airbrush using velvet underglazes. Bases, when used, are of various hardwoods.
