We hope you plan to attend tomorrow night’s opening of Ceramica at GOCA 121, the Gallery of Contemporary Art at UCCS’s downtown gallery, because two of our great local ceramicists will have their work on display. If you aren’t already familiar with their work, here are two Big Something’s we did with “3-D Political Cartoonist” Corie Cole and, below, potter Mark Wong:

One doesn’t often mention international foreign policy and ceramics in the same breath. Artist Corie Cole took the absurdity of such a proposition to its (il)logical conclusion in what she calls her 3-D political cartoons. As America prepares to cast its ballots in the presidential election on Tuesday, Cole takes us on a first-hand tour of outsourcing and the hidden forces behind our foreign affairs.

Manitou Springs potter and all-around clay artist Mark Wong shares the magical secrets of his trade with us.
