Circular Logic




It may look like ceramic artist LuLu Fichter has gone dotty with her all-white porcelain bowls and vases. The white motif is in opposition to the colorful flowers she painted on someone else’s pots for years. As a production potter, she finally burned out on the process. Fichter, from Peterborough, started teaching and was inspired by her students to get back into clay. Her fascination with buttons and all things circular was a new starting point. One day she made a few holes in a pot with the end of a copper tube. The theme took off with a life of its own — she pierced, cut and embossed in a methodical fashion, yet curiously, the work appears organic. Fichter has come full circle, back to the malleable medium she enjoyed first as a child. — Susan Laughlin Lulu Fichter, (603) 924-1095 lulufichter@yahoo.com Bowls and vases, $50-$350 Available also at the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough, (603) 924-7676.
