The Crimson Laurel Gallery opened the Interpreting the Cup invitational at midnight tonight. This is yet another great cup show that has gone online in the last week. Jason Bige Burnett curated the show around the cup form as a starting point for ceramic art. It's great to see how this form was interpreted by sculptors and vessel makers.
After a quick viewing my favorite work is this sculptural form by Lisa Clague. It is both sculpture and vessel as the top head comes off to be used as a functional cup. Clague has a unique approach to color and line, as well as eye contact and body language in her figures. Check out more of her work on her website by clicking here.
The show will run through the end of the year at www.crimsonlaurelgallery.com.
