Ceramics Exhibit

I recently saw a great ceramics exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. It included a number of pieces of teaware and all the works were by women. Very cool! Here's a link to the exhibit's info. If you go to the museum, don't forget to check out the new Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, especially the installation of Judy Chicago's Dinner Party--it's amazing!

Lately, there's been a lot of internet hype about "tea art" by Eric M. Sternfels. Personally, I think it's campy and not-so-attractive, but, hey, to each his own, right? You can check it out at Pourtensious, but, obviously, I'd much rather you see the work at the Brooklyn Museum!
