“San Diego artist Ashley Kim, Sacramento potter Sunshine Cobb, and Korean ceramist Mi Kyoung Kim take divergent approaches to the ceramic container, using a variety of processes from wheel-throwing to hand-building to slip-casting. All three ceramists work with ideas of containment and volume in ways that range from the purely poetic to the straightforwardly functional, but always with an acute visual and formal awareness of the power of integrating sculptural volume with richly tactile surfaces, and always with the vigorous character of work made with the human hand.” -Richard Burkett, guest curator and ceramic professor at San Diego State University.

Vessel Variations will run from September 26th until October 25th, 2016 at Grossmont College’s Hyde Art Gallery. The Hyde Art Gallery will also host an opening reception on October 4th from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM. There will be live music and delicious refreshments. Admission is always free and the public is encouraged to attend!
