The League’s 2019 nationally juried Tabletop exhibit features a functional ceramic, metal, and functional wares – perfect for wedding gift or an update to your own collection. The 50 juried pieces in the exhibit include metal utensils, wood and ceramic bowls, beautiful serving platters, ornate vases, practical but beautiful mugs, and even a small few tables!
Interesting fact: this year’s trend seems to be ceramic pieces that are wood fired!
This year’s jurors, Hitomi & Takuro Shibata, not only juried this exhibit but also taught a workshop and gave a talk in the Gallery. Their selections for this year’s winners are:
$1,000 for Best in Show: Paige Harper’s Teapot
Two $400 Equal Merit awards: Catherine Satterlee’s Madeline in Spring and Allison Severance’s Kitchen Colander
Functional Art Forms
$1,000 for Best in Show: Michaela Borghese’s Going to the Carnival
Two $400 Equal Merit awards: Michael Brehl’s Untitled and William Peirce’s Multi-Species Bowl
