Didem Mert and Jenny Reed, recent graduates from the Northern
Kentucky University Ceramics program, spent years working
together,inspiring each other and developing their skills and artistic visions.
In this show, Mert’s functional ceramics paired with Reed’s abstract
multimedia sculpture generate this same energy of friendship and excellence
but in very different expressions.
