The Valley

Taos, New Mexico

Amelia Lockwood, “shearx,” 2023. Wood-Fired Stoneware, Glaze, 7½ x 12 x 4½ in.


The Valley is pleased to share a solo presentation of new works by Amelia Lockwood, an artist who primarily works with ceramic to produce sculptures that reference sites of collective exchange: celestial, geological, psychic, and architectural. These sculptures were created utilizing atmospheric firing methods which involve introducing minerals such as salt and soda ash into a blazing hot kiln. Following the currents of the flame, chemical reactions occur—an alchemical dance of minerals and vapor, which leaves behind an imprint of the of the firing on the clay which can never be recreated.
