Tall Tales & Totems Show with Jill Smith at the Bozzi Gallery

Jill Smith has been known as a potter forever, but few people know that she also writes. Ever since starting her specialty food company, Buckeye Beans & Herbs, she has written humorous scripts, not only to entertain but also to interject some thoughts on life lessons. This show is the first time she has mixed clay with words. Totems, by nature, tell stories as do the whimsical writings she calls her Far Fetched Fables.

'Tall Tales & Totems', the November show at the Spokane Bozzi Gallery this Friday, November 7 from 5 to 8 pm, will feature the playfully written fables alongside the more serious art of the totems. The 3' to 7' totems illustrate certain parts of the fables, preserved forever in clay. The totems themselves are created from stoneware clay that has been fired either in a high fire kiln, a soda fired kiln or in a raku kiln. Come see the impressions in the clay totems that illustrate such fables as 'Riding Fish', 'A-Green-Ment' and 'The Rabbit In the Moon' fables.

The Bozzi Gallery Collection is located above The Olive Garden in the Old City Hall Building Address: 221 N Wall St Suite 226. Call 509-290-5604 for more information.
