With two days to spare, I made it to the Society of Arts and Crafts exhibit: “Our Cup Runneth Over: Sculptural and Functional Cups”. It is not to be missed.
For a potter, there is no better exhibit than one that allows you to interact with art. This beautiful cup by Kyla Toomey is visually delicate looking and when you slip your finger through the handle the reasons for the weightlessness become clear. Flip the piece over to study the trimming and you are rewarded with a hidden decal of a flower. The attention to detail in this piece is everywhere.
“Our Cup Runneth Over presents ceramic cups by 36 contemporary artists. By juxtaposing unique approaches to a common utilitarian object, the magic and versatility of clay is highlighted at this biannual sale, as appealing to the seasoned collector as to the student.“
This is the first of a few posts about this exhibit. It is brief so that I could get the word out before the show closes.
