This year’s National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts is just about a week away. Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida will be overrun with clay artists, teachers, and enthusiasts. I am lucky to have work in several shows and locations in the area, though I won’t be there myself. One of them is The Art of Function at the Craftsman House Gallery.
Above is a poster for 2 shows hosted by Craftsman House in St. Pete, The Art of Function and Contemporary Traditions in Art Pottery. These posters, rolled in a mailing tube, made their way around the country from potter to potter. Each person represented on the poster has autographed each poster, re-rolled the stack and sent it to the next person on the list. If you’re in town for the conference, stop by to see the show and pick up a poster that traveled many miles in a circuitous route to make it back to Craftsman House.
