About: Mitch Lyons is a well-known and important part of the local art community, who over the past three decades has developed a truly innovative form of print-making. The artist pours clay slips of various colors directly onto a stoneware clay slab surface and draws, paints, or cuts directly into the clay with a variety of traditional and unexpected tools—brushes, stencils, and cookie cutters. After framing the desired image with drywall tape, the artist pulls a thin layer of clay that is permanently embedded in the fibers of the fabric support. The distinct nature of the medium and technique ensures the uniqueness of each print.
