Lanning Gallery
Russ Vogt: Animal Magnetism
Lanning GalleryThis new exhibition unveils large and boldly colored mosaic tiled animals located in the gallery’s outdoor courtyard. The new menagerie joins Russ Vogt’s current and popular collection of colorful ceramic reeds and totem-style sculptures on display inside Lanning Gallery. Russ Vogt’s imaginative animals are first welded together as a steel armature before metal lathe is wired over the surface to form the animal. He applies a concrete mixture to the wire form creating a nearly final shape. Vogt creates his ceramic pieces as roughly 5/16″ thick by 8″ x 10″ clay flats that he fires then glazes before breaking each up with a hammer. Certain details (such as eyes) are created with specially designed tiles. For more information please visit the Lanning Gallery website.
