BOTTOMS UP! A CELEBRATION OF CUPS
From the morning mug of coffee that jumpstarts your day to the last shot of tequila that ruins a night, cups of all shapes and sizes play integral roles in our daily lives. Continuing a much-loved Santa Fe Clay tradition, we’ll be honoring the humble drinking vessel with a special exhibition curated with both the holiday season and the year’s end in mind.
Santa Fe Clay has extended invitations to more than 150 distinguished ceramicists around the world, asking each to provide two cups for inclusion in this remarkable installation. Whether they produce mugs or yunomis, shot glasses or goblets, one thing is certain: each participating artist will offer his or her distinct interpretation of this common household object, adding new forms — and new energy — to the cup’s ongoing evolution from its ancient roots.
Exhibition runs through January 13, 2018
