Clarksville's Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – Amy Chase: Rediscovered Relationships is a magical world currently on view in the Planters Bank Peg Harvill Gallery of the Customs House Museum and Cultural Center.

Creatures and landscapes that appear to have jumped from the pages of a storybook float on the walls and hide within glass cases.

Kentucky artist Amy Chase has added to the mysteriousness of her works with titles such as Interminable Dissolution and Disremembered.

The exhibit consists of porcelain, terracotta, and earthenware pieces with intricate patterns that are applied using precise slip and glazing techniques.

Since receiving her MFA from Southern University, Illinois, Amy Chase has exhibited her contemporary ceramics throughout the United States. Her award-winning artwork has been published in Niche Magazine, Clay Times, and AmericanStyle, to name a few.

“My work investigates the relationships between objects. I am concerned with the formal design of the object while focusing on representing personal relationships, memories or situations of my own experiences,” says Chase.

“These representations are depicted through multiple forms and the space created between them. I am able to communicate different emotions by varying the distance between the objects or by adjusting their balance. My ceramic forms are constructed methodically by hand; I push and pull the walls of my forms to create a sense of volume. These forms reference an abstracted nature, creating a sense of familiarity,” stated Chase.

Rediscovered Relationships will be on exhibit through July 31st. Located at the corner of Second and Commerce Streets, the Customs House Museum is the second largest general museum in Tennessee.
