For the last six years, Santa Fe Clay has hosted a unique exhibit of dinnerware during the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts annual conference in cities across the U.S. Due to the success and popularity of “La Mesa”, Santa Fe Clay is bringing this unique show back to our gallery in New Mexico this December.
This spectacular one hundred foot banquet table display will fill the entire gallery, and over one hundred artists from across the country will present their place settings and centerpieces. This is a wonderful opportunity to view work in an extraordinary variety of styles, and to collect one-of-a-kind pieces. It is also a chance to see work from some sculptural artists who shift focus and create functional pieces.
This exceptional show will be on display at Santa Fe Clay December 10, 2010 - January 15, 2011, just in time for the holidays.(Images: Karen Massaro Thuessen, Ivory Cup , 2009-2010, Porcelain , 3.5-4.2"h ; Birdie Boone, Tulipiere, 9.5 x 9.5 x 9.5; Sue Tirrell, Rooster’s Peril, Dinner set; Courtesy of the Artist and Santa Fe Clay)
