Nothing like an invitation to a themed exhibition to get you out of your comfort zone! I haven't made a teapot in ages but that's just what I had to do for TeaTime, an exhibition of ceramic vessels related to the idea of tea server, coming up at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY. This exhibition of functional and sculptural teapots explores the history of tea and its relevance in our culture. The exhibition will highlight the teapot, whose form and related ceremonies has inspired artists for centuries and continues to be a valid form of expression in studios of contemporary artists today. Opening Saturday, Feb 1 and running through Tuesday, Apr 1, my work will be in some very good company of fellow fantastic clay artists. An reception is scheduled for Saturday, Feb 1 from 5 - 7 p.m.
