This week's Work of the Week is:

Pat Matheson, Verdant Landscape, 1994, ceramic, low fire oxidation, Gift of Pat Matheson, 2007.46.1

Verdant Landscape, Pat Matheson

Local artist, Pat Matheson, created a series of ceramic sculptures and handmade paper wall sconces that investigated the history, environment and politics of this area over the last 150 years mostly through his family’s own ties to it. This piece, Verdant Landscape, references the richness and fertility of this region during the spring months that is reflected in the colours and text inlaid on the surface of the piece.
