For our April and May exhibition, Plinth gallery is please to present the ceramic work of Melanie Sherman. Originally from Germany, the artist maintains a studio in Kansas City Missouri. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Kansas City Art Institute. With a background in graphic design, her work evidences a keen eye for pattern and decoration, sourcing 18th Century European porcelain.

Travelling and studying extensively, she has explored the history of both ancient and contemporary porcelain. These cross-cultural interests have enabled her to developed highly skilled decorating techniques using ceramic China paints and overglaze metallic lusters. She is the recipient of a Windgate Fellowship as well as a Fellowship from the National Council On Education For The Ceramic Arts.

Ceramic China Paints and overglaze metallic lusters are ceramic based decorating materials that are applied over an existing fired glaze. Fired at a temperature low enough to melt the colors into the surface, extremely bright colors are possible along with lustrous bright metallic precious metal embellishments.

Melanie Sherman’s exhibition, “Second Spring – Zweiter Frühling” opens at Plinth Gallery on First Friday April 7 from 6-9pm.
