Ted Gallup’s Ceramic Artistry

by The Editors on August 29, 2007

69.JpgThis week is the last chance to check out Carlsbad artist Ted Gallup’s ceramic art display at the Georgina Cole Library in Carlsbad. According to a profile in the San Diego Union Tribune Gallup is a project manager at a health care company, but spends his free time handcrafting ceramics pieces in the studio at Palomar College.

Gallup’s art is not the typical pottery we’ve all seen too much of at street fairs and art walks. His pieces range from architectural to playfully graphic yet each is oddly intriguing and seem to demand closer inspection.

Currently I’m really influenced by industrial structures and architecture,” said Gallup, a Carlsbad resident who made California his home more than 20 years ago. “Not only just the form, but I’m very interested in the surface details and the effects of weather and time on those structures.”

Friday will be the last day to see his art at the Library, however, you can see more of Ted Gallup’s ceramics on his blog at http://tedgallup.blogspot.com/.
