Objects Gallery to host reception for Chris Jones

Objects Gallery, 4462 Irvington Road, Irvington, will host a “Meet the Artist” reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, August 4, for visiting artist Chris Jones.

Jones is a stoneware potter from North Carolina. His creations are a combination of wheel thrown and hand building, reported gallery manager Terri Thaxton.

All of his glazes have been developed and altered through years of experience and are lead free, said Thaxton. All of his serving pieces are food, microwave, oven and dishwasher safe.

Jones offers several different themed pottery pieces. His coastal-themed pottery includes various fish, sea turtle and crab shaped bowls and platters.

Jones also will be available from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 5, to show his latest works, discuss techniques and answer questions. Lemonade and cookies will be served Saturday.

These events are free of charge and open to the public, added Thaxton.
