The James Renwick Alliance (JRA) showcases ceramic artist Judit Varga as part of the 2016-17 Distinguished Artist Series.

An accomplished ceramicist, Judit uses three shapes – circle, square, and knot – as her basic vocabulary. By concentrating on simple forms, texture and muted colors, she highlights the sensual qualities of the clay itself and explores wider subjects of movement, transition, and change.

In the JRA workshop Judit will show some of her techniques for creating texture and interesting color variations, and forming her large abstract shapes (held at artist’s studio in Kensington, MD.)

In her lecture, Judit will show slides of her work and discuss her career, including her international background and influences.
