I got a call this week from Scott Roberts in the Animas Valley of Colorado, inviting me to be part of the "Three Cups" show in October. It's a show of teabowls (chawan and yunomi) and related Japanese teaware, at the Durango Arts Center in Durango.
The list of contributing potters is impressive, including Doug Casebeer, Alleghany Meadows, Sandy Simon, Robert Brady, Doug Fitch, Hannah McAndrew, John Neely, Brandon Phillips, Blair Meerfeld and more. Also, work by the late Japanese potter Tatsuzo Shimaoka. There will be close to 200 pots in all. I'm happy and grateful to have four of my pots included among the work of those terrific makers.
The show will be curated by Michael Thunder of the White Dragon Tearoom and Gallery. It runs October 8-28. Sounds like a great event there in the San Juan Mountains of Southern Colorado. Wish we could be there, but it's great that the pots can be.
I'll attach photos of a few recent bowls of the type that will be sent to the show. Haven't made any final decisions yet on what will go to Colorado.
