Tina Gebhart on the cover of the December 2009 issue of Ceramics Monthly

 

Focus: Pots and Function

Several potters included in the 2009 Strictly Functional Pottery National discuss their pieces in the exhibition-from teapots to egg trays, from the kitchen to the living room, from concept to execution-and the qualities necessary to make those pieces successful. Function can mean different things to different people, and these potters all bring something insightful to the table.
