Family Dinner was an experiment in turning an art gallery into a social space where visitors and viewers would join me in sharing a meal together. I believe that eating together can turn a group of strangers into family, and handmade pottery enriches this experience.
I made a set of 20 place settings for this show, each one unique, and those who attended the dinner were given one of the sets as a memento and thank-you.
Took these photos with my phone on a roadtrip a few years ago. The California Coast is my escape, and it’s always only a matter of time before I’m racing back into her arms again.
