Clark Sorensen will be transforming Ruby’s Clay Studio Gallery into
the most unusual bathroom display you are likely to ever see. There
will be close to one dozen new Urinal Sculptures in the shapes of
flowers and shells on display with several of them hooked up to water
so they can be flushed (not used however).
exotic urinals are both startlingly beautiful and a puzzling
combination of functional bathroom fixture and whimsical sculpture.
These large-scale flowers and shells, deftly crafted of high fire
porcelain, create an ironic marriage of beauty and functionality. Each
one is a unique shape and each uses water flow in a different way.
Visitors will be invited to flush selected urinals and enjoy firsthand
their magical use of water and shape.
first solo show in San Francisco a year ago, Clark’s fantastic urinals
have been featured in magazines and books throughout the world. His
Red Hibiscus Urinal was awarded an honorable mention in the
Visions In Clay National Art Exhibition held in September of 2005. In
February of this year he was honored to be invited as a special
exhibitor at the Kyung Hyang Housing Fair in Seoul, Korea where tens
of thousands of people enjoyed his sculptures. If you didn’t catch his
show last year you absolutely must see and experience his new pieces
at Ruby’s Clay Studio June 2-26, 2006.
