The unexpected oddness of our lives; the twists, turns, stumbles and rebirths — these occur by chance and circumstance, the subtle marks and scars of experience influencing expression, outlook and presence. The intrigue of this process is reflected in roughened clay surfaces, faces not quite real, and glazes painted in layers and rubbed off, alluding to life that is layered and seasoned, rather than glossy, perfect, or predictable. Jude Odell is a professional clay artist, showing and selling her work in juried exhibitions across the country. She holds a BFA from Virginia Commonwealth University in Crafts and Art Education, received an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Indiana Arts Commission and a Creative Renewal Fellowship from the Indianapolis Arts Council.
