16th Biennial Teapot exhibition “Tea and Cookies”
For this biennial teapot exhibition we are interested in the idea pairing teapots with cookie jars. This pairing becomes an investigation around the idea of the container, both in construction and what it means to us culturally. In Britain they have tea and biscuits, but here in America, we talk about the union of a warm beverage with a delicious cookie. We could say that this is essentially the same idea, but with different socially economic status attached to it. Actually the cookie jar is an iteration of the biscuit barrel, a British container of biscuits. As this jar form was introduced to the States and Canada, it took on the name, “Cookie Jar”.

Seward Park Clay Studio and KOBO Gallery in Seattle, Washington invite you to our 11th Simple Cup Invitational, a much anticipated annual event in Seattle. We have celebrated the work of several hundred artists from North America, Japan and Korea, and we'd like to feature your work this year.
The seemingly diminutive cup is in fact a very individual and personal pot. It is amazing that artists find ways of expressing themselves uniquely and fully with 'the Simple Cup". Whether the perfect utilitarian cup, the sculptural form or a tableau for decoration, we showcase a wide range of cups and people line up to see the show.
The show runs from November 4 to the end of 2017.

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.
