Opened April 15, 2006
MudFire Gallery welcomes back the teapot with "Teapots-A-Go-Go 2006", our third bi-annual gallery exhibit and sale of dainty, gorgeous, eccentric, frightening, sublime and otherwise wickedly-cool teapots.
This huge multi-artist show opens on April 15 and continues through May 8. An opening party will be held on April 15 from 5p-10p.
Images of individual works for this past exhibit are not available.
More About Teapots-A-Go-Go-2006
The teapot is the most expressive, inspiring and challenging of functional forms. The artist must carefully balance their creative ambitions with the technical requirements of thoughtfully integrating handle, spout, body and lid. The teapot is an invitation to experiment, and an important proving ground for contemporary studio ceramicists.
The goal of our curators and jurors is to celebrate the diversity of the contemporary teapot. We will bring you teapots gentle, insouciant, staunch, wild, formal, rustic, elegant, and playful. And maybe, just maybe, amongst them you'll find the perfect teapot.
Two $250 awards will be juried by teapot master Rick Berman of Atlanta. One for Best Sculptural and one for Best Functional. Awards will be announced April 24th.
