Flintridge Prep Ceramics Students Display Work at Pomona Museum
Flintridge Preparatory School advanced ceramics students Kenalyn Ang ’15, Cartier Juan ’16 and Natalie Rozman ’16 have had their ceramics pieces chosen for display in kilnopening.edu2014, So-Cal Ceramic Academia at the American Museum of Ceramic Art.
According to the museum, the biennial exhibition is an opportunity to highlight a wide variety of ceramic works by California college and university professors and select advanced students.
The opening is Saturday, April 12 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at 399 North Garey Avenue in Pomona. Admission is free. The exhibit will be on display until June 1.
Kenalyn Ang’s piece, called “Milk Splash,” transcends its medium so well that it requires a double take. Chinese ceremonial bronze meets mid-Century modern in “Bull Pot,” by Cartier Juan. “The Bean” is a miniature wink to the large-scale sculpture “Cloud Gate,” located in Chicago’s Millennium Park.
The students were able to achieve the smooth texture of glaze by using a commercial spray booth, a recent purchase by the visual arts department. Ceramics teacher Biliana Popova is a working artist in her own right, with her most recent exhibit at the Burbank Creative Arts Center Gallery. In her three years at Flintridge Prep, she has helped students of all ages discover the versatility of clay and other materials, techniques and glazes.
