Containment…A Group Exhibition of Ceramic Boxes
opens Thursday April 1 @ 10 at Crimson Laurel Gallery in Bakersville, NC.
David Trophia has been leaking images of some of the boxes on the gallery’s Facebook page as well as several video teasers. From the looks of the what I’ve seen so far, it will be a great show. Thanks to the gallery for using my box on the invitation and in one of the video spots. The box pictured above is one of the two in the show.
Boxes have been one of my favorite forms to make and collect since Jane Shellenbarger hipped me to box making in her Penland workshop back in the fall of 2000. I still wish I had one of the beautiful woodfired boxes she made during the class.
