Departures can bring to mind travel and adventure. In the history of art, many travel to different places for renewed inspiration, novel techniques, and new subject matter or they might contemplate the art and nature they see daily to take them in a new direction. Scope artists have been tasked to try something new this month. To have “a change in latitude, a change in attitude,” as Jimmy Buffet would say. This month, departing from their familiar creations, Scope artists present novel creations. From sculptures to tableware, from jewelry to singular forms new ideas abound. With the Kiln Club.
