After retiring from a career in civil service, C. Larry Wilson decided to buckle down and play in the mud at his studio, Hobson Creek Pottery. The artist, who spent a year in Vietnam during his tour in the Navy, started out in ceramics by creating hand-formed bells often personalized to honor veterans with their names and years of service. He began throwing clay on the wheel soon after, and for the past eight years or so has been cranking out whimsical sculptures in the form of folksy face jugs and animals such as polka-dotted guinea hens, owls, armadillos, woodpeckers and pigs. Wilson’s works will remain on view through December.
