The Teaware From The Edge exhibit and workshop, organized by Rob Fornell and Rick Mahaffey, took place at Tacoma Community College, the home of Rick and Reid Ozaki. The exhibit ran from March 26 - 30th, and included works from 36 artists from the USA, Japan, Korea, and the UK; the workshop was held on the 31st and April 1st, and featured Rob Fornell, Richard Milgrim, Inayoshi Osamu and Jeff Shapiro. I hitched a ride with the fast and friendly, helpful and hair-raising Brendan Fuller to view the exhibit and attend the first day of the workshop. It was great to see such a range of work in person, to learn from four very talented and knowledgeable artists, and to meet a number of other teaware and ceramic artists who attended. I had a chance to take a few photos of the exhibit, which may be seen here on the exhibit page, along with a list of those participating in the show. For more photos and notes on the workshop presenters, click on the photos of their works below.
