Catch “A Place at the Table” Before the Feast is Over

Artist Reid Ozaki explains his process to curious gallery guests.

It’s mid-September—have you found your Place at the Table? It’s at Bainbridge Arts & Crafts, and it’s the name of our current show featuring six ceramic artists.

Based on an artist’s inherent style, we invited each of them to create a collection of functional ceramics in a specific theme, such as al fresco dining, tea for two or a paella fiesta. Come see these artful tables before the show closes on October 1, and be inspired by visions of gastronomic celebrations. Featured artists are:

  • Pat Espey – Al Fresco Fun, terra cotta.
  • Nana Kuo – Thanksgiving Gathering, porcelain.
  • Reid Ozaki – Sushi, stoneware.
  • Carianna Schreitz – Tea Party, porcelain.
  • Terry Siebert – Paella Fiesta, majolica.
  • Cameron Snow – Tea Party, painted porcelain.

Artist Cameron Snow presents her finely detailed botanical painting on Limoges porcelain. Behind her is a Claudia McKinstry watercolor.

Pat Espey’s terra cotta pieces are ready for an al fresco afternoon.
