Putting Clay to Work - Niche Magazine features Plinth Gallery

Persistence, perseverance and patience. These are the qualities that Plinth Gallery owners Jonathan Kaplan and his wife Dorothy Bensusan credit for their growing reputation as a resource for fine contemporary ceramics.

Some of their success can be attributed to what Kaplan describes as “a very discernible sense of discovery” in the River North Art District (RiNo), just north of downtown Denver. With more than 200 active artists, RiNo is the largest of eight art districts in a city known for its enduring clay traditions.

Techno File: casting rheology by Jonathan Kaplan

Clay exhibits remarkable properties that, with the help of some basic chemistry, allow it to be fully dispersed in water to become a casting slip. With an understanding of some basic concepts of rheology, we can increase our skill set and formulate smarter casting slips.

Porcelain Birds Have Migrated to Plinth Gallery!

Christy Hengst’s porcelain birds have landed in over sixty public locations internationally;  forty of them have now migrated to Plinth Gallery for our first installation. The birds carry images and text, silk-screened and high-fired, in cobalt blue -- recipes, love letters, newspaper articles, photographs, drawings, poetry --  dealing with a wide range of human experience.  The pieces are hand-built, and each is different in form and content.  People can choose intuitively which bird or birds are right for them.  This work is suitable for outdoor installation as well as indoor display, and there are several interesting mounting options.

www.birdsinthepark-thefilm.d a documentary film by Tom Meffert and Dagmar Diebels 

"What excites us most about this public art project is that it inspires passer-bys to talk to each other. Questions arise like “What is peace and what is war?” “What is public art” or “Can art achieve anything?” Very different people share their own experiences, exchange their thoughts and come away inspired and with more consideration for our conflict-fraught world."

This documentary collects those personal experiences, preserves some of the conversations and hopefully encourages more conversations to happen.
