GRANTS AND RECOGNITION

2009
DINNERWARE/FUNCTIONAL CERAMICS SYMPOSIUM

Invited guest: John Glick
3rd - 30th June, 2009. International Ceramics Studio, Kápolna, Hungary



A symposium to investigate directions in functional ceramics.
Domestic pots have gone hand in hand with human civilization. What does hand made functional ware bring into our lives that a cheap, useful, factory-made bowl doesn’t? This question strikes at the heart of our capitalist society where convenience and conformity have become goals and “lifestyle” has replaced life. In this world the fast food equivalent of pottery has led to fashionable dishes in the latest colors and “contemporary” shapes have replaced meaningful objects; functional pots made by potters bringing the concerns of the domestic world into direct contact with the concerns of the artistic world.
The privilege of using handmade pots is that they contain the idea of human endeavor, a link with other people not with factories or corporations. Most people haven’t lost touch with this concept when it comes to food. A home cooked meal is still the epitome of good, nourishing food for the body and soul. But society as a whole has lost contact with the fact that pots can do the same thing.
