the gallery at taste

artist spotlight: ben anderson


I’m so pleased to have the work of Ben Anderson gracing our gallery, ready to share with fellow art appreciators.  Thanks to a friend and loyal collector of Ben’s work who needed to downsize her art collection, we’ve acquired a vast and varied number of ceramic reliefs and plates.

Among my favorites are Ben’s molds of a freshly caught fish, not unlike the Japanese fish printing process where a fish is rolled onto a soft paper. The glazing on his fish is luminous and perfectly slippery.  I’m also lucky to have one of his crab and lobster plates too, inspired by the traditional Portuguese dish from Friends Market in Providence.

Learn more about Ben and his series of highly charged compositions that remind us of the simple beauty found in living things.

Only the best,
