Things Your Food Might Say (and other thoughts from Kentucky)

I'll have the salad smallerThings Your Food Might Say (and other thoughts from Kentucky) is a show of new handmade tiles by Rick Hoffman.

Over the past eight years, Rick has developed a style of stoneware recognizable by its colorful glazes, vintage images and bawdy sayings. His work is fired three times to set homemade decals into the glaze. For TYFMS, Rick leaves most of the vintage images behind and uses jello molds and silhouettes as the inspiration for his text. Some pieces will make you laugh out loud, while others, rife with double entendres, may make you blush.

Hoffman graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1984. In 2008, after twenty years of exhibiting work and teaching pottery, he built Covington Clay (a teaching studio and gallery) so that others may also experience the satisfaction of working with clay.

We’re excited to be showcasing his newest creations on our gallery wall. Hop around the ‘hood this weekend and join us for the March edition of Northside Second Saturdays on March 9th!
