Listen to the interview with Scott Leipski[/ult_cornerbox]
Artist Scott Leipski of Gladstone is holding his first solo show at the Bonifas in Escanaba. An artist reception is being held tonight at 7 p.m.
Leipski says he tries to tell stories with his clay creations and the title of the pieces. But he says his elaborate pieces do not come from inspiration but failure.
"Being an artist, particularly being a newer artist, is about failure. You will fail constantly but it's whether you will take those failures and you learn from them or if you just give up. I'm not about to give up," said Leipski.
His show runs through April 28.
