Whim Vessels by Barbara Dunshee

For the 2014 Madison Park Art Walk I debuted a new series I call "Whim Vessels", on view at Home Street Bank. 
Their features emerge from the very walls of the vessel form. I sought spontaneous gestures that felt transitional to create a sense of shifting expressions. I chose a monochromatic porcelain palette to focus on the form rather than the surface colors.

Home Street Bank invited to host the pieces after the Art Walk, and the remaining pieces moved to their windows. It's a lovely space and the staff at the bank has been most welcoming!
The bank recently had its own opening of this particular branch and threw, yet again, a great party, and kicked it off by donating $5,000 to the YWCA Central Area Food Drive!
