|In celebration of the richness of the local ceramic art scene, Xiem Gallery invited renowned Pasadena
ceramic artist and educator Stephen Horn to curate our AxS 2011 festival show. In response to the festival theme “Fire and Water”,
Steve came up with the evocative title Stoked! referencing the parallel universe of what he terms the “tribe” of ceramic artists
Steve’s take on the festival theme is quirky yet exquisitely pertinent to a local festival - while kilns and the stoking thereof
are areas of common experience for potters worldwide, the dual pursuit of forces of fire and water as defining elements of
personal expression, appears to be unique to California clay.
A life-long surfer and ceramic artist, curator Steve Horn will present his own work in the company of works by a group of eminent
ceramic artists who surf. The exhibition promises to reveal fascinating correspondences in the passionate commitment to form,
play, courage, balance and open-ended exploration germane to both disciplines.
