Exhibitions > 2017 Ceramic Inovations

This international juried exhibition is dedicated to enhancing the public's awareness of contemporary ceramics while providing a venue for established and emerging artists alike to share their functional and sculptural creative endeavors.

Juror – Chris Gustin, , “I am interested in pottery that makes connections to the human figure. The figurative analogies used to describe pots throughout history all in some way invite touch. The pots that I respond to all speak of a clear, direct sense of the hand. The hand is celebrated in the work by its maker, whether it is that of a fifteenth century rural potter or a nineteenth century court artisan. And it becomes a necessary tool for the user in understanding the relationship of the object to its function, and subsequently, to how that object informs one’s life.”
