Featherstone Pottery Fall Show – Redwing, MN

Join us for our annual Pottery Show at Featherstone Pottery in beautiful Red Wing, MN.  This three day event at Featherstone Farm features lots of new pottery fresh from the wood-fired kiln for your festive holiday tables, potlucks, and gift-giving.

Form and Function of Featherstone

All art forms originated from utilitarian roots. And many of them still serve to inform, to teach, to communicate, to entertain, or to beautify. And while pottery can do all of these things, it still clings tenaciously to its traditional verb form…to do.

Pottery lies within the realm of functional arts. To see Featherstone Pottery is to understand its purpose. Like making wood furniture or blacksmithing, hand-thrown pottery or stoneware is the ultimate blending of beauty and function.

A New 22-Foot-Tall Abstract Sculptures Await at Anderson Center – Redwing, MN

A New 22-Foot-Tall Abstract Sculptures Await at Anderson Center – Redwing, MN

Artist Perci Chester celebrates the arrival of her newest creation, “Film Noir Ensemble,” at the Red Wing arts destination!

Minnesota Monthly: Created by artist Perci Chester, this whopping 22-foot-tall sculpture consists of two abstract figures that appear to be in motion. Both pieces were created from the repurposed steel of an old water tower, and painted with their own bright and unique hues. Due to its bright pink and lime green colors, the sculpture has been an eye-catching spot in the garden since its installation back in October 2020. “These colors just somehow animated the sculptures in a way that resonated with me, but also because they’re my favorite colors,” says Chester.

With a name inspired by a previous creation named Coupled Dancing, Chester drew her inspiration for Film Noir Ensemble from her fascination with relationships. Like many art pieces, the goal was to allow different interpretations depending on how you look at it. Chester says the name is also open to interpretation.

Built with such massive pieces of metal, Film Noir Ensemble took nearly 15 years to complete. In 2006, Chester began building her sculpture by molding various sheets of metal to create different angles and shapes to form the humanoid figures. “I loved the rivets, which are a big element on the pieces,” says Chester. “They just had a kind of energy that excited me when I began working on them.”

The event comes just a few weeks ahead of the Anderson Center’s 25th anniversary celebration on July 24.

Developed by the Center in 1996, with assistance from the Red Wing Environmental Learning Center and the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, this 15 acre park is one of Minnesota’s largest sculpture gardens and includes works by nationally and internationally acclaimed sculptors, including Charles Biederman, Siah Armajani, and Zoran Mojsilov. Complete with observation deck, walking trails, benches, picnic areas, interpretive signs, mesic prairie areas, and stunning vistas of the Cannon River valley, this spacious open-air gallery serves as an artistic and educational resource, a natural habitat, and a quiet place where one can glimpse a sampling of the region’s original native ecosystem. There are currently over 30 sculptures in the garden and on Anderson Center grounds.

Red Wing pottery refers to American stonewarepottery, or dinnerware items made by a company initially set up in Red Wing, Minnesota, in 1861 by German immigrant John Paul, which changed its names several times until finally settling on Red Wing Potteries, Inc. in 1936. The pottery factory that started in 1861 continues to the present day under the names of Red Wing Pottery and Red Wing Stoneware. There was a respite in production when Red Wing Pottery Sales, Inc. had a strike in 1967 causing them to temporarily cease trading. The company still makes both zinc/Bristol glazed products as well as salt-glazed, hand-thrown, kiln fired items
