What could be more special for those precious young people in your life than a one of a kind bowl or cup as they begin to experience the world of food. We want to give them only the healthiest food, why not serve it in handmade ceramics? The quest to find a bowl and cup that is the perfect size for little hands is not easy! We have asked three artists who are also parents to make dishware especially to fit and appeal to children. Lana Heckendorn, Melissa Mytty, and Joseph Pintz works are sure to delight everyone in the family.
Andrew Snyder, Professor of Ceramics at West Chester University, will occupy our gallery during the month of September. He will explore his ideas about the power of skill, throwing, and the demonstrating of these concepts. Join him in his contemplations: "Traditionally, the act of throwing is merely a means to an end; the potter's wheel, a tool. How can the means be separate from the end? The means should determine the end. There is a truthfulness to work that does not hide the manner in which it is produced. When one commands a skill, there becomes an artistry shown in the process of performing that skill."
