Event Description

Craft Alliance (CA) is pleased to announce CA’s most anticipated exhibition, HOT TEA: 13th Biennial Teapot Exhibition. The opening reception is on Friday, March 9, 2012, from 6 – 8 pm in CA’s gallery in the Delmar Loop. Throughout the world, the drinking of tea is an integral part of the social fabric, from the everyday sharing of mate amongst friends in Uruguay to the traditional tea ceremony in Japan. The common thread linking all of these tea-time traditions is the dynamic of sharing; for this exhibition, artists from all media (clay, fiber, glass, metal and wood) share their appreciation and interpretation of the teapot with CA. 

 

The roster of participating artists this year is quite an impressive one! CA is proud to announce Richard Notkin as one of the featured artists. His work is influenced by the tradition of Yixing pottery, and can be found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and the Mint Museum of Craft and Design, among others. Kevin Snipes is a young African-American ceramic artist who uses skillfully designed vessels and quirky figures as vehicles for storytelling. Other skilled clay artists, such as Joe Bova, Sam Chung, Eric Serritella, and Blair Meerfield, add their unique perspectives to the show.

 

We will also present the glass and metal work of Robert Ebendorf, a leading figure in the studio jewelry movement. His found object jewelry has been shown in galleries around the world, leading to a retrospective exhibition of his work at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C. Internationally known fiber artist, Jo Stealey, will display her teapots created out of leaves and paper, while Ed Bing Lee showcases his intricately knotted pieces. To complement CA’s increasing interest in wood, this year’s exhibition features more wooden teapots than in previous shows. Nationally acclaimed woodturners John Jordan and Dixie Biggs will both feature their work, as well as internationally known pioneer woodturner David Ellsworth.

HOT TEA, Craft Alliance’s 13th teapot exhibition, is partially underwritten by The Republic of Tea. Financial assistance for Craft Alliance’s exhibition series has been provided by the Regional Arts Commission, the Arts & Education Council, and the MISSOURI ARTS COUNCIL, a state agency.
