Inspiredby natural reeds found in marshlands, Russ Vogt’s ceramic sculpture “Red Reeds” is as graceful and engaging as it is red. Comprised of hand formed over-sized “beads”, each segment in unique. Russ Vogt fires his clay at an extremely high temperature, which makes it vitreous. Thus, even in the coldest days of winter, this artful sculpture can stay outdoors without water or ice permeating its solid surface. Elegant enough for indoors and hearty enough for outdoors, Vogt’s good design shows. Beautiful in the summer, but stunning in the winter against a white backdrop of snow, “Red Reeds” are appropriate any time of the year.
