Welcome

Shalya Marsh’s work expresses the intrinsic limitation that language places on communication, through the use of decipherable codes and symbols. Marsh’s hand built ceramic sculptures reference illuminated manuscripts, ancient cuneiforms, and primitive accounting systems known as tokens. These archaic systems of recording information are juxtaposed with modern codes and ciphers such as binary, substitution, and Morse. The viewer is invited to literally decode the piece’s nonsensical pangrams and whimsical definitions.

Baltimore Clayworks

I am honored to announce that I have been awarded the Lormina Salter Fellowship at the Baltimore Clayworks. The residency fellowship runs from September 1, 2011 to August 31, 2012.

Realizing the need to enrich the existing collective studio with creative, energetic and artistically diverse ceramic artists, Baltimore Clayworks offers a one-year residency fellowship as a memorial to one of its founders, Lormina Salter. Salter was a gifted teacher and respected artist whose initiative, energy and insistence on artistic excellence were instrumental in setting direction for the Clayworks.
