This postcard image just showed up in my inbox from Santa Fe Clay. Below are the 3 faces of the vase that I sent for this show.
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.
This is a view of the exhibition, For the Table: Dinnerware, at The Clay Studio in Philadelphia. It opened March 4 and runs through April 10. It is a show of place settings by potters from around the country. There are some fantastic plates, bowls, mugs, tumblers, cups and saucers that can all be viewed and purchased online by clicking here.
The participating artists in the show are: Albion Stafford, Andrew Gilliatt, Brenda Quinn, Daniel Ricardo Teran, David Eichelberger, Frank Martin, Gail Kendall, Gwendolynn Yoppolo, Hiroe Hanazono, Jana Evans, Jennifer Martin, Joseph Pintz, Kristine Morich, Kyla Toomey, Martha Grover, Marty Fielding, Matt Hyleck, Meredith Host, Paul Donnelly, Ursula Hargens, Victoria Christen, Ingrid Bathe, Bryan Hopkins, Alec Karros, and Brenda Quinn.
