"Turquoise Is Loneliness"
by sabine7 / November 21, 2005


Wendy Walgate is a Toronto ceramicist who focuses on colour by way of masses of small ceramic objects in a single colour group. The effect is stunning. Walgate uses slip cast earthenware, mostly animal forms, with glazes in a range of hues within a family and creates cleverly arranged heaps, often with a vintage container (this could be a suitcase, a desk, a drawer, a vase, etc.) as a base. Accumulation is a clear theme throughout the work, as is the quest to create one solid object out of many smaller, disparate ones. And despite the fragile nature of the medium, Walgate presents us with such bold forms that draw strength from colour and composition.
