Joseph Pintz: Ceramics
We live in a culture that is always on the go. Our obsession with time and speed is one of the defining qualities of our era. Paradigms shift over the course of a year, cultural fashions change overnight, email is instant. The truism “time flies” seems truer every day. Handmade pottery forces the user to slow down and pay closer attention to the meal, the moment, and the company around the table. This dialogue reinforces the value of aesthetic experience over efficiency.
The FOCUS GALLERY program features six single artist exhibitions in 2014. These exhibitions are available for viewing and purchase both online and in the Penland Gallery.
