JBaymore posted a topic in Ceramic Events of Interest"I'll Drink to That" A National Exhibition of Drinking Vessels This show opens with a reception for the artists on Friday, August 4, from 6 to 8 pm. It remains on view, Thursday to Sunday, from 10 am through 5pm, through August 27. The premise of the special exhibition is to underscore the aesthetics and diversity of high end ceramic artists creating functional but exquisite objects. More than twenty-five ceramic artists from as far away as Oregon and Arizona as well as local and regional potters will exhibit. Ceremonial tea bowls, wine cups, whisky cups, juice cups, steins, chowder mugs and more will be available for purchase. A variety of clays, techniques, glazes and firing processes will be represented. During the busy summer season there is a lot of tourism in the community drawn by proximity to MASS MoCA, The Clark Art Institute, Williams College Museum of Art and the Berkshire Artists Museum.

JBaymore posted a topic in Ceramic Events of InterestMaking Handbuilt Chawan The formal Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chanoyu) has had a profound impact on both the Japanese and world ceramics since the feudal era in Japan. The making of formal tea bowls (Chawan) is considered the pinnacle of the art of the potter in Japan. This six-session class will share two specific hand-forming techniques for the making of Chawan. It also will explore the â€œrulesâ€ for desired formal attributes of a Chawan within the context of real Chanoyu. A discussion of the formal Chanoyu process will be included, and we will conclude our classes by sharing Matcha (i.e. ceremony tea) out of the bowls we have made in a semi-formal Tea Ceremony in which the class participants get to be both hosts and guests.
