About The Artist

Danielle Bewer's work seeks to reconnect to the joy of the child within, to cut through the layers of conditioning and give voice to that pure, candid, playful energy. Her abstract ceramic art can be seen as a conversation between pattern and color. It’s the dialog between these two—the tension between order and emotion, between the composition’s rigid structure and the exuberant color of its parts—that gives form to the message. The result is a satisfying compromise: there’s harmony in containment, but it’s the color, the emotion that has the last word.

About The Artwork

This piece is made up of twelve 10" glazed ceramic discs mountedon wood frames. The name for the “DOTS” series originated with my first composition, whose colors and shapes reminded me of a brand of candy sharing the same name. The "DOTS” in this pastel palette take me back to my childhood in Rome, Italy—the warm colors of the buildings, and the delicious selections of gelato. The discs float 1.25" off of wall, lending the composition a 3-dimensional quality.
