My 3 little petal piece cups will be on display at the Clay CoOp in Rockville MD from July 8th - 24th. The Clay CoOp is a neat little gallery / studio / classroom space that was envisioned and brought to life by Chris Landers. He wanted to create his own ceramics community and he did! It's impressive and I'm happy to have my work exhibited there.
This is a new body of work I'm hoping to play with more. They are my interpretation and celebration of a Japanese form called ‘Soba Choko’. These cups were made for everyday domestic use during the Edo period (1620-1886). Although they were mass produced, they encouraged an appreciation of craftsmanship and beauty of functional objects.
