A North Shore potter will be featured at the Waterfront Gallery in downtown Two Harbors in November and December.
Influenced by English and Chinese folk pottery, Al Omarzu creates ash glaze forms with unique decoration and texture. His pottery is designed and priced to be used every day in the oven and on the table. His work will be on display Nov. 12 through Dec. 30. An opening reception is scheduled for 3-5 p.m. Nov. 12.
Omarzu is recognized for the commercial work he does - including clients Grandma's Marathon, Great Lakes Aquarium, and the Superior Hiking Trail - that encompass hard-edge graphics and logos.
The Two Harbors resident also exercises his creativity as a mechanic, welder, illustrator, hot rod builder, violin maker, leather flight jacket restorer, and nose art painter.
The Waterfront Gallery is at 632 First Ave. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. For more information on the Omarzu exhibit and other exhibits, visit www. waterfront-gallery.com.
