Charles Tryon | Sculptor
Saturday 9:00 - 5:00
Sunday 11:00 - 5:00
I have had a passion for clay and sculpture for as long as I can remember. Some of my fondest childhood memories are still of summer pottery classes at the local art museum. My work communicates on different levels, from the utilitarian to a simple reflection of the beauty I see around me. It may express a response of hope or fear or love, or the reality of light or darkness. Or simply the little child at play. Clay becomes a language to express that for which I have no words. The underlying thread in my journey has been growing to understand what it looks like to integrate the truth of my relationship with Christ and my expression as an artist. I am learning to let my creative process reflect the complicated dynamic of Faith – something which is not always pretty or positive or well understood, but which carries underneath it the reality of Hope.
“Reflecting faith, hope, and beauty through art.”
