CRAFTED: Ceramic Cups, Mugs, & Tumblers

Earthy colored mugs handmade by Sarah Pike

Dining is a daily part of life, but it’s often treated as a routine of physical necessity rather than a mindful experience. In our increasingly fast-paced, takeout food-centric world, we invite you to slow down and reexamine the ritual of eating through a special celebration of handcrafted ceramic-ware.

CRAFTED is an annual Contemporary Craft Store showcase and sale featuring ceramic artworks in an effort to encourage people to reflect on the relationship between the food we consume and the objects that hold it. This year’s CRAFTED will focus on handcrafted cups, mugs, and tumblers by more than 30 selected ceramic artists from around the world. Don't miss CRAFTED to shop and gift artfully for this year's holiday season.

Get first picks on the beautiful functional ceramic artworks featured in CRAFTED at its opening reception on Friday, November 3, 6 - 8PM!

Artist Talk: Maggy Rozycki Hiltner

Maggy R Hiltner. Vantage Point (Details), 2015.

Embroidery artist Maggy Rozycki Hiltner creates images that at first appear to be whimsical or vibrantly happy, but on close inspection are not quite so. Her work sometimes addresses the malicious undertone in relationships, or the characters' lack of self-control, or the otherworldliness hidden in commonplaces. Hiltner like the way this subtext works against the comfortable and innocuous medium of fabric and stitching. Join us on January 26, starting at 5:30 PM to learn more about Hiltner and her creative process!
