  • Newark Academy Welcomes Artists Paul and Irene Aspell

    Artists Paul and Irene Aspell will be showing a body of work at the David Teiger ’47 Gallery at Newark Academy from Oct. 11 - Nov. 25, 2019. The exhibit entitled, Plates and Prints, reflects the artistic collaboration between Paul’s ceramic work and Irene’s love of printmaking.
    A potter for more than 30 years, Paul finds the process of working in clay to be evolutionary. “The inspiration that I receive from creating one piece is infused into the next,” he said. “I enjoy the process of making, as much as the finished product.” Using the natural world as his inspiration, Paul captures the essence of the earth in his plates and vessels. An oxide wash under a single, satin, white glaze creates surfaces that are simple and elegant, yet are wonderfully complex, upon closer inspection.
