James Tisdale: "Thoughts from China"

James Tisdale's terra cotta figures, new work inspired by his 2010 residency in Jingdezhen, China, go on exhibit today in Gallery II of the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.

Tisdale, the Ceramic Program Coordinator at the Austin Museum of Art, said the residency "taught me to refine, to shed and to simplify my life and in turn my work."

His figures often wear what might be read as jester's hats, but the expressions on the faces aren't meant to amuse; looks like the joke's on them. Will write more after I get to UALR to see what promises to be excellent work, especially for eccentric figurine fanatics like yours truly.
