Say the word ceramics to most folks and theyll show you their I Just Work Here coffee mug or tell you about the time they got high, went to a strip mall pottery studio, and painted pot leaves on a dog bowl. Thats great for a casual encounter, but theres got to be more to the craft.
Revealing the functional, brainy, and foxy side of the pottery process, the Ceramic Design: Manufactured Brilliance and Beauty in Daily Life exhibition at ASU features works from designers who not only have the material know-how, but also offer an alternative to the dichotomy of mass-production versus studio one-offs.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: April 10. Continues through Aug. 24, 2010
