Inside the seed and the bulb is the intelligence of the plant, the enclosed map of creation. A strong atmosphere of coiled energy and replete germination dwells in the ceramic sculptures of Barbara Campbell Allen. Presenting the pod as a heroic, yet raw and humble, entity the skilled artisan works with primal forms and subtle materials. Here are artworks at their most animist, praising nature at its most roughly hewn and minimal. Her interpretation of materials has the power to turn one element into another, to transmute the solidity and mass of earth into the secretive stems that grow there, silent and awaiting the sun and rain.
