"One of the most impressive ways of presenting a meal to a guests is also the simplest: piling the food high on serving platters. Which is a relief after you've been toiling in the kitchen."
"With a style that blurs the line between fine art and functional design, ceramicist Andrew Molleur isn’t a stranger to breaking the mold. His pieces combine clean lines with geometric patterns and textures, creating unique visual and physical experiences wherever they’re displayed. We teamed him up with artisans in Lima, Peru to create this modern suite of Incan-inspired, mix-and-match pieces."
Clay & Glaze is a curated installation that features contemporary work by an invited group of regional and international ceramicists. From faces (and other body parts) on canisters to crumpled vessels to architectural, hard edges, Clay & Glaze will highlight contemporary ceramics at its best.
"Although pottery once felt like a dated medium- it does go back 20,000 years, after all- today there are communities of you ceramists sprouting up in cities across the world. Their experimentation with shape, function and texture is unprecedented, and thanks to the internet, their craft is more accessible than ever."

"In the 21st century, design has become personal. Bombarded by an endless array of mass-produced objects in big box stores and on the Internet, people are increasingly attracted to the unique and custom-made. Drawing on designers and makers in the Hudson Valley and environs, this exhibition considers the ways in which the contemporary design object is customized for the individual, from the one-of-a-kind objects made by craft techniques to the latest technological advances of 3D printing. The exhibition will include approximately 25 designers/makers and demonstrate a range of approaches to design."

Andrew turns all of his cylindrical molds on a plaster lathe he rigged himself after spending time in Europe, where the practice is far more common than in the U.S. "I was taking mental notes and rough measurements and photographs so that when I came back, I built this."
