Ceramic art seems to be the most easily reproduced. Potters often make their work in large batches. At the same time, it’s impossible to recreate an object exactly, and there’s something intriguing, and perhaps a bit sinister, in the difference between those copies. At least, those ideas are at play in Day In and Day Out, an exhibit of potter Elliott Kayser’s work. Kayser, a Portland-born artist, relocated to Michigan in 2010, and is a member of the Ann Arbor Potter’s guild. Kayser’s subjects, like toy boats, stylized pigs and rats, hint at our childhoods, but also at probing ethical dilemmas. Day In and Day Out runs Sunday May 5 through Sunday June 16. An opening reception will be held on Friday May 10, and Kayser himself will discuss his work at 3pm on Sunday May 26. Free. Opening reception 7-9pm. Clay Gallery, 335 S. Main St. 734-662-7927. www.claygallery.org.-JS
