Join us for a one-day solo exhibition of handcrafted ceramic cups, bowls and flasks, as well as brushes and pottery tools, by Troy Bungart 1-3 PM, Sunday, August 6, in Pewabic’s courtyard.

Bungart describes his cups as yunomi-style whiskey tumblers, perfectly proportioned for bourbon. His bowls range from ideal-for-saké individual sauce bowls to cereal-serving size. Pottery tools include wooden ribs and trim knives, some of which are collaborations between Bungart and other artists.

“I really enjoy the connectivity of working together with somebody,” explains Bungart, who incorporates other artist’s ceramic ferrules. The finished pieces include both artists’ chop marks. “It’s a way to share and make something that couldn’t be made without working together. I believe very strongly in acknowledging the people who affected us.”

This is Pewabic’s fourth Kiln Pad Pop-Up exhibition, held rain or shine in the courtyard of our historic landmark building. Bungart’s pieces will be available for purchase on a cash-and-carry basis. For additional information, please contact exhibitions@pewabic.org.
