Details:Oakland ceramicist Woody De Othello is best known for his large-scale anthropomorphic figures, which are often humorous portrayals of domestic objects. For Hope Omens, he will present an entirely new body of work. Many of the works were produced using molds De Othello created during his Arts/Industry Pottery residency in 2020. While he was in residence, the world outside the factory was shifting. Working through both the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and the initial protests around the murder of George Floyd, De Othello found new meanings in his common subject matter. De Othello draws on African minkisi, or objects that are believed to be invested with spiritual protection and energy. Breath and breathing are ideas often expressed in De Othello’s vessel-like forms covered in mouths. These concepts, and the power to deprive people of their breath and their ability to breathe, are now more highly charged. In addition, many of his new works feature both ears and mouths, offering meditations on listening, hearing, and being present. He frequently adds texts to his ceramics, a nod to the enslaved potter Dave Drake, who produced some one hundred thousand alkaline-glazed stoneware jugs between the 1820s and the 1870s. Drake incised many of them with poems and his signature, in clear defiance of the law forbidding enslaved people from reading or writing.
