Bowl: Hands in Clay by Yukon Ceramic Artists 

May 12 - Jun 3

Hands in Clay - A Group Exhibition

Bowl: Hands in Clay by Yukon Ceramic Artists 

“Humbly beginning as an improvement from cupped hands and folded leaves, the Neolithic era brought forth the bowl as a drinking vessel. The bowl now holds a place in domesticity, ritual, ceremony, and art.
When learning to throw on a wheel, potters find the bowl form is a challenge. The centrifugal force of the potter’s wheel pulls the walls of the vessel outwards to collapse.
It is with practice and skill that the potter can use this force to their advantage and shape the clay as they want.
Clay hand-builders take simple coils or slabs of clay and mold them with a thousand fingerprints into a bowl vessel that can perform a thousand tasks.
The handmade ceramic bowl is a testament to time, dedication, and artistry.
