You Can Touch

These photos are from the Louisiana State University post-baccalaureate ceramics group show at Firehouse Gallery in downtown Baton Rouge, May of 2018.  The show marked the end of our one-year program. I concentrated on decorative wall hangings to diverge from my usual functional tableware. The event was a brunch reception to take advantage of the natural light in the space. We also made mugs for the show and hoped people would interact with our work, drinking coffee from our cups, while they browsed the show. We came up with the show title as a group, but to me personally, aside from being an invitation to engage with our work, it's a reference to a song of the same name by an all-female garage rock band called The A-Lines.
