SAKE RECEPTION

MAY 7, 2016 3:00 - 5:00 PM

"This exhibition highlights contemporary sake ware from some of the most renowned Japanese and Western ceramists. The show includes a wide range of form and firings; from wood fired to highly decorated surfaces, as well as innovative approaches to design. The Japanese aesthetic of beauty in nature is interpreted by the artists in their own way. The exhibition shows the breadth of artistic creation through the vessel form."

Statement

"My mission is to create a world in which we can live in harmony with nature." - Jane Goodall

Thankfully there are heroic people working for animal conservation. This exhibit is about endangered animals in Africa: a tribute to their magnificence and a hope for their future. We share this earth with these magnificent creatures that deserve our protection.

"Most of my work addresses specific endangered animals but there are also creatures that simply capture my imagination such as the aardvark and warthog. The rectangular form in my sculptures represents civilization and the precarious balance that many animals are experiencing."
Ronnie Gould
