Golden Moons / Exuvia

Frances Dorsey & Rachel Morouney

Combining warp or weft printing processes and warm natural dye hues, Halifax textile artist Frances Dorsey invites us to contemplate the moon – hunter, blue, blood or harvest – Golden Moons illuminates the compelling power these night orbs cast over our earthly existence.

The 20 works comprising Exuvia celebrate New Brunswick potter Rachel Morouney’s lifetime of dedication to her craft. Her skillfully executed intricate hand carved motifs, glazes and vessel shapes offers an inspired collection of stoneware funerary urns. Each one reflects its own unique individual characteristics, qualities and nature as a remembrance of the departed.
