Orcas Island artist Hannah Alex-Glasser is feautured in a solo show, “Strata,” which opened on Thursday, April 3, at the Catherine Person Gallery, one of the East Edge contemporary art galleries in Seattle. The exhibition includes her hand-formed and kiln- and pit-fired ceramic sculpture as well as a central installation, “Shorelife/Ebbtide.”

Alex-Glasser is largely self-taught in her use of clay.

Notes from the exhibit state, “Alex-Glasser’s work is quiet and understated, with unglazed rough-textured matte surfaces. Her hand-formed sculpture is built from hundreds of layers of clay, kiln-fired first and then buried in the ground and pit-fired again.”
