Ceramic artist Ken Gangbar had some new pieces at the recent Interior Design Show in Toronto. His objects in clay are delicate works of porcelain that rely on elegance and simplicity of form rather than a surfeit of detail to carry through their impact. The small porcelain pods that jut out from the wall in an installation of seemingly random placement is fantastic, one of those pieces that draws the viewer in closer and closer, but is just as attractive from a distance. Likewise the flatter, seed-like pieces arranged in a wave are just as enticing. What makes these installations so effective is the sheer quantity of unexpected objects in an unexpected place.
