Cedar Creek Gallery National Teapot Show X

Cedar Creek Gallery has hosted this show every three years for the past twenty-six years. Some of the past participants include Bennett Bean, Lanny Bergner, Silvie Granatelli, John Jordan, Fred Johnston, Carol Gentithes, Jen Swearington, Steven Hill, Patrick Horsley, Michael Kehs, Peter Pinnell, Garrett Keisling and Noi Volkov. Over the years, we have developed quite a following of teapot collectors now awaiting the opening of this show.

Although every show is special in its own right, this year’s showing is especially significant as it leads into the 50th anniversary of the gallery. Marking the first kiln opening in 1968 this upcoming fall, we will be celebrating five decades of creating, showcasing and supporting fine craft. Started by two potters, Sid and Pat Oakley, Cedar Creek Gallery has stood the test of time by maintaining its high standard of supporting artisans from all over North America and connecting the public to quality, hand-crafted treasures. Annual festivals and shows like this one contribute to the ongoing narrative that art is necessary to a healthy, happy community and enriches the lives of all those who come across it.

List of the participating artists coming soon!

Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight at Ogden Museum of Southern Art

Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight

Since 2008, the Ogden Museum has presented Art of the Cup, featuring two cups each by selected Southern ceramicists. For the third year, we are also welcoming artists to submit a teapot (which is not necessarily required to form a set with the cups entered) for our accompanying exhibit, Teapot Spotlight. Few objects span cultures, time periods, rituals, and daily uses like the teapot and cup.

Prominently installed on the third and fourth floors of the Ogden Museum, Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight was viewed by over 24,000 visitors last year, and is an annual favorite because the cups are for sale (available for pick-up or delivery upon exhibition closing.)

Art of the Cup and Teapot Spotlight opens on Thursday, September 1, 2016 and closes on Tuesday, December 6, 2016. We hope you will be a part of this year’s Art of the Cup and join us for an opening reception on Thursday, September 1 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. during our weekly live music series, Ogden After Hours.

Five day workshop: "Introduction to Japanese Aesthetics in Everyday Pots"

Place: Touchstone Center for Crafts, Farmington, PA

Date: July 25 - 29

Title: Introduction to Japanese Aesthetics in Everyday Pots

skill level: open to all (no previous experience required)

Traditional Japanese pottery has had a strong influence on American ceramics. Some Japanese pottery terms such as Chawan (bowl), Yunomi (daily tea drinking cup), and Kyusu (teapot) have become known in the United States. But do we really know what’s what, how it’s used, and why? And how can we utilize that knowledge to enrich our own life and creations? Japanese pottery offers an opportunity to reflect on the function and aesthetics of daily life. In this workshop, we will learn the historical origins of the Japanese designs, and explore the forms while examining the possibilities. Both wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques will be employed for various subjects. 

For more information, please contact Touchstone Center for Crafts at http://www.touchstonecrafts.org/

The Clay Studio: 100 Cups at the National Council on Education in the Ceramic Arts Conference (NCECA)

The Clay Studio: 100 Cups will explore the mentor / mentee relationships amongst makers. The display will encourage conversation on the intersecting nature of makers while providing access to the work of artists both new and established. The opportunity to compare form, weight, surface and design of these cups will be an incredible opportunity for all NCECA attendees.

Each artist will send 10 cups.

One cup per artist will be displayed in the booth.

Once a cup is purchased it will be replaced with another cup by the same artist.

All cups will be packaged with a card about the maker.

The Clay Studio will produce a book highlighting participating artists and their work. The content will include biographical information, statements from the artist, and 100 full color images representative of each artist’s work. It is our goal that this book be used as a teaching tool or personal reference guide for students, artists and collectors.

The Clay Studio will offer digital access to the book through a website, making all the information accessible for free.

Archie Bray Fall Residency

Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, was founded in 1951. Ever since then, they have been hosting a wide variety of residencies for ceramic artists and supporting the clay community relentlessly.

I am awarded an opportunity to stay and work there for about 5 weeks from September to October in 2015 as one of the short term residents. This will be my first time to visit Archie Bray, which was on my dream list. My residency proposal is to explore medium scale porcelain sculptures, away from the pottery wheel while I am there. This will be a great adventure, I appreciate the foundation for giving me the opportunity. The reports of this residency will be posted on the blog section of the website, during and after the residency.

"Everything We Touch, It Touches Us" A week-long workshop at Touchstone Center for Crafts

Date: August 3 – 7, 2015

Workshop Title: Everything We Touch, It Touches Us

Instructor: Yoko Sekino-Bové

Workshop Skill Level: All Levels

Workshop Type: 5-Day Workshop (Monday-Friday)

The artist’s voice is often constructed with the materials, structures, colors, surfaces, and techniques he or she chooses to use. This workshop will be about discovering and developing your voice and telling your stories through clay. Materials, functions, tools, and firing methods will be discussed and demonstrations to improve your technical skills will be shown. Since ceramic work often presents stories of its own, your creative challenge in this workshop will be to establish a conversation with it and discover where that dialogue leads. We will use mid-range electric kilns to complete some projects. All levels welcome.
