> DESCRIPTION

Lora Schlesinger Gallery presents Peter Shire’s Cups, 1974 – 2012 featuring a body of work focused on more than 30 years of ceramic cups, that have never before been exhibited.  The show is the artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery.  It opens Saturday, April 21 from 5 - 7 pm and is on view through June 9, 2012.

Peter Shire is recognized for being an innovative and unclassifiable artist. Since the 1970’s Peter Shire has been at an intersection where craft, fine art, architectural and industrial design collide.  He is not a “traditional” ceramist and his ceramics push the boundaries and preconceived notions of clay. For nearly four decades Peter Shire has made a collection of teapots, cups and other functional items typically found in domestic settings with atypical designs. The works have challenged ideas of form versus function, and have become sculptural objects occupying domestic settings.
