NBO member Larry Page has two of his “Metropolis” teapots featured in the Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design’s Delmar Loop Gallery exhibition in St. Louis, Missouri.
Juror Bruce W. Pepich has selected the best works entered in all craft media from both emerging and established artists.
“Visually, one can usually identify a teapot because it has a body, spout, handle and lid, but each teapot has its own unique and complex characteristics based on the artist creating it. Teapots have traveled all across the world and appear in many different cultures and nations. This exhibition, Identi-TEA, draws from the different interpretations and explorations of the artist-made teapot, as well as the ways artists express their own identities in creating their works and the messages these works carry about the artist’s individual characteristics. Whether functional or sculptural, each teapot can project its own personality just as the artist creating it can inject aspects of his/her persona into their work.”
The exhibit runs through March 18, 2018. More information at Craft Alliance Center
