Nordvold appreciates the intimacy of everyday use of functional pottery, and strives to create quality pieces with a high standard of craftsmanship, while still expressing the warmth and vitality of one of man’s oldest art forms.
Case is primarily a figure artist, drawing in charcoal and pastel, and also experiments with watercolor and other painting media. Drawing the human figure has been an interest since childhood. Life drawing presents the challenge of rendering a form believably while also conveying some sense of the life or spirit within. Participation in the weekly life drawing sessions at Gualala Arts provides opportunity to develop these skills.
Case and Nordvold met at Art In The Redwoods at Gualala Arts in 2011. They married two years later and this is their second joint exhibit at the Dolphin.
