Wayne Cardinalli – Teapots and More
April 5-28, 2013
Opening reception Friday, April 5, 7-9:30 pm
Cardinalli states about his upcoming exhibition, “I’ve always enjoyed the challenge of making functional teapots. How does one make the five elements of the body… In addition to function, the aesthetic challenge also is interesting to me. As a potter, I use the teapot form in much the same way a painter or sculptor may use the human form, as subject matter for artistic expression. Both the functional and non-functional teapots in this exhibition explore the boundaries of sculptural form. Though I’ve made teapots for over forty-five years, I find it an inexhaustible subject.”
