Mitch Lyons is a well-known and important part of the local art community. Over the past five decades he developed a truly innovative form of print-making. Lyons worked as a traditional potter until 1980, the pivotal point in his career when he refined his method of printing directly from clay. Like most traditional potters, Lyons is motivated by a love for the material and describes himself as a “clay person making prints.” However instead of firing the clay to a permanent state, Lyons captures a lasting two-dimensional image of the clay’s surface. This exhibition surveys the developments and experimentations in Lyons’ 50-year-long journey to inventing the clay monoprint.
