Connecticut Clay Artists celebrate 10 years at the JCC in Sherman
The Connecticut Clay Artists, a group of 14 potters, will celebrate its 10th year showing at the Jewish Community Center of Sherman.
This is a unique opportunity to see diverse ceramic art in a picturesque environment. The town of Sherman offers the Old Store, the Historical Society and the White Silo Farm winery and gallery to explore on the weekends, too.
On Friday, from 5 to 7 p.m., there will be a meet-the-artists wine and cheese reception. The show continues Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
CCA's work includes hand-built, wheel-thrown and sculpted art made from stoneware, porcelain and earthenware. The clay is fired in electric, wood, gas and Raku kilns. Clay pieces in this show are both functional and decorative.
A signature of CCA is its frequent collaborative artwork, which is done during monthly workshops. The group has become famous for its team teapots and other creations, including a new one -- thrown and altered mugs. A "seconds" area will be available also.
Members of CCA include president Stephen Becroft (Ridgefield), Monique Brooks (Greenwich), Paula Cook (Ridgefield), Sue Ann Heller (Fairfield), Katie Tynan Helu (Ridgefield), Joyce James (Southbury), Sarah Koster (Norwalk), Rosalind Liljengren (Newtown), Annette Morasco Marcus (Brookfield), Paula Sibrack Marian (Sherman), Hannes Videos Overgard (Wilton), Karen Pinto (Newtown), Peggy Thomas (Ridgefield) and Lynn White (North Salem).
