[art|photos] He took a face from the ancient gallery and walked on down the hall

Lisa Costello and I recently visited ceramic artist Beverly Toyu at her studio in Dayton, Oregon. We were both absolutely croggled at what we found there — hundreds of ceramic life masks and molds. It was beautiful and strange and more than a little unsettling. Neither of us had come prepared for serious photography, but with Beverly’s permission, I took some shots on the iPhone.

I give you faces:
