Hands to Mouth Opening Reception

Reception: Friday, May 7, 6:00-8:00pm.
Exhibition: May 7 – June 12

The cup is the quintessential ceramic form. Potters throughout history have obsessed with the vessel shape, searching for their own perfect balance of beauty, function, concept, and expression. Contemporary ceramic artists have continued this exploration creating cups, mugs, tumblers, etc. that make their users think, feel, laugh, admire, and want to drink more!

Hand to Mouth is a national juried exhibition of finely crafted and artistic drinking vessels that showcases a variety of styles, techniques, and firing methods used in contemporary ceramics. When focusing on an everyday object such as a cup and artist’s hand and eye can elevate the most common and mundane routine of drinking into an uplifting experience. Join us to view the wide range of interpretations created to honor this simple, basic form.
