October Featured Artists: Andrew Avakian, Willem Gebben, Janel Jacobson
Late autumn is an occasion for color and comfort, and this month’s featured artists offer functional wares to sate cravings for both. Avakian’s handbuilt work dares you to engage the surface through touch and sight while challenging traditional form and function. Gebben brings an array of pots—from a serious, studded black pitcher to an endearing and playful turtle-topped box. Jacobson utilizes muted and appealingly familiar glazes that are often soft to the touch on forms that have evolved over a lifetime of experience. It’s the perfect time of year to curl up with a good pot.
