MARCH 10 – APRIL 29, 2012
This group exhibition explored how ceramicists, who work in a high-design aesthetic and often use molds to create their functional objects, engage with today’s industry, the consumer, and the ceramics community at-large. Bridging the roles of artist/designer/ceramicist, these individuals redefine traditional consumer-consumption relationships by offering dinnerware and other functional pottery to enhance the consumption experience, question mass production methods, or experiment with utilitarian design itself.
Participating artists included: Nicholas Bivins, Ryan Fletcher, Andrew Gilliatt, Hiroe Hanazono, Jason Miller, and Lenneke Wispelwey.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Artist Ryan Fletcher was in residency at NCC March 8th – 26th.
