“Ceramic Constructions” by Thom Caccamo 

Art is the center of Thom Caccamo. He has made art, looked at it, and collected it for most of his life. Although he has made ceramics since 1980, it is only in the last five years that he has been exhibiting it. His work is included in competitive ceramic exhibitions and several Lark books on ceramics. For the last five years he has exhibited at Ceramic Showcase.

Thom says, “I have carried around a notebook everywhere I have been since I was in my twenties. It is from this, my “paper brain”, with its collection of my ideas, musings and observations, that my ceramic constructions grow. Shapes are cut from thin slabs of white clay. They are finely sanded, fired, layered and then assembled with epoxy glue. The starkness of the very smooth, unglazed white clay lets the shapes stand out without distractions and emphasizes the interplay of light, shadow, and line.”

”I have always been a hand builder. Although, I used to do functional pieces my interest in current events led me to my new construction method which provides me with greater opportunities to make social commentary, especially climate change and the destruction of wildlife.” Thom sees his ideas come to life in his large ceramics studio in St. Johns which he shares with his wife Pam.

Guest Artists’ Show  – “CraneAge”  at Art On Broadway Gallery

•Art On Broadway’s October Guest Show will feature folded paper cranes and artwork from the children’s book, “Today I Will Be.” It will be a fundraiser for the nonprofit, CraneAge.

•The practice of folding 1,000 cranes has come to symbolize a hope for peace during challenging times. Patrice Demmon has, to date, folded over 27,000 cranes which she makes into chains. Sales of the chains benefit critically ill children and their families in five local hospitals. Every crane sold raises $1 to help theses kids and their families. They provide gas, food, and lodging to families that can’t afford to travel to Portland to be with their sick children. It is a way to provide help during a time of incredible stress. Their children’s book, “Today I Will Be,” has been illustrated by twelve local artists. The proceeds from the sale of books and artwork are all donated to the families of these ill children.

•In conjunction with the Jubitz Family Foundation, the War Prevention Initiative, Portland Artist’s Peacebuilder Initiative and World Artist’s Peacebuilder Initiative, CrangAge is dedicated to the children of the world. Let there be peace.
