We all had such a great time at the Art Fair this year and we really appreciate all of our loyal supporters turning out to see us and our work. We had a wonderful weekend of great weather, the vendors and artist were all top notch, and we met a lot of new friends that loved and responded to what we’ve been working on the past few months. For artists who haven’t participated in the Powderhorn Art Fair, you can’t ask for a group of folks that is more supportive and willing to work with you; from making sure you are all right, by feeding you breakfast and lunch and by doing a great job marketing the event. The volunteers who supported the event did a wonderful job and we appreciate all of their efforts. Thanks again to everyone who stopped by the booth and for the hardworking folks at Powderhorn who made it all possible.
There are few things in this world as soothing as watching master craftsmen guide their clay into shapes. Human beings have been making pottery for thousands and thousands of years, and our appreciation for their work goes bone-deep. The video above features five masters of the craft, all known in South Korea for practicing traditional techniques that date back centuries.“Although technological advances constantly redefine the ceramic industry, Korean ceramic artists strive to preserve the tradition of peace, simplicity, and spiritual temperance of Korean art,” writes the American Museum Of Ceramic Art. Consider the techniques preserved. The video reminds us that as much as we treasure finished works of art, sometimes the act of creating them can be just as astonishingly beautiful.
