Member Exhibit

Olympic College Clay Club

Paintings and sculpture - all with bold color and design. Jim presents larger than life bentwood flowers of all colors and shapes with a few driftwood birds for good measure. Pat uses recycled newspapers and file folders to make paper mache like you've never seen before. Her large acrylic paintings are filled with bold color and some have a bittersweet message.
