Event Description

The Art of Opening: Bottles and Their Toppers

The Art of Opening: Bottles & Their Toppers, will run at the Center through July 18, 2009. Here is one exhibition that is bound to make truly unique gifts for wine lovers and collectors!

To push the frontiers of American and International Craft, the Wood Turning Center sent out a prospectus calling for original hand-made, limited production corkscrews and wine bottle stoppers. The Center recruited two internationally known artists, Boris Bally and Michael Hosaluk, as guest curators for this exhibition. Each juror reviewed the content, forms, materials and construction methods utilized in the corkscrews and bottle stoppers. This highly-imaginative exhibition is shown in conjunction with the Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) annual conference, Revolution, in Philadelphia, PA, from May 20-23, 2009.

In an exciting collaboration that evolved from how to display these works, the Wood Turning Center and WheatonArts and Cultural Center, Millville, NJ, have partnered to work with local glass artists to create one-of-a-kind glass vessels inspired by each bottle stopper. These hand blown glass vessels and bottle stoppers will be on display.
