Next Event ~ Dessertware for a Delicious December

On December 3rd and 4th Andy will have another show of new work dedicated to serving dessert! I’ll post more details soon.

Images from the Teapots & Accessories Show Plus Fall Photos

Thank you to everyone who visited us last weekend for the Teapots and Accessories ~ Exhibit and Artist’s Reception! Below you will find some photos that I took of the exhibit to create a little virtual participation for those of you who couldn’t make it. You will have to provide your own tea and cookies and wine and cheese to simulate the artist’s reception a little more robustly! :^)

In addition to Andy’s work, there were teapots by Ray and photos by me. Some of these pieces are now just a bit of wrapping paper away from being lovely wedding gifts! Others went home with happy new owners and some are still available at the gallery! Check the “Visit” page for gallery hours or, since I have yet to add e-commerce to this website (Which I WILL be doing soon!), email me at bostree@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing a piece and having it mailed.

Andrew’s robust porcelain forms are accentuated by high fired glazes applied in multi-layers to create surfaces rich in depth. Color schemes include ohata, pictured top left, true blue, pictured bottom left, celedon green, winter white and gloss black. These glazes, reflecting the influence of historic Chinese pottery, Japanese pottery and Venetian glass, complement Andrew’s modern yet classic aesthetic.

The exhibit and reception will be held in the Bostree Gallery special event room, next door to the gallery.

 

“Andrew’s teapot forms are round generous, and joyous. They look like happy Buddhas.”

The Bostree Gallery is pleased to host this exhibit of Andrew Boswell’s most recent work. New pieces to be included in the exhibit are dinnerware, platters, nesting bowls and colanders among others. Andrew’s pottery, hand thrown on the potter’s wheel, is exclusively grolleg porcelain, a very white, fine, sometimes translucent clay body. His glazes, meticulously layered in just the right way, create colors and textures that flow to accentuate his fluid and graceful forms.

The exhibit will be on display in the Bostree Gallery Special Event Room, 1361 Kings Highway, Sugar Loaf, NY (for GPS use Chester, NY)

The spring is in full swing, and full bloom! Andrew has created a number of new vases to showcase nature’s latest creations to brighten your home or office. He is also working on some hanging planters and sets of bowls which, are reminiscent of lotus blossoms especially when stacked largest to smallest, one atop the other. Diane’s crystaline glaze pottery always suggests flowers due to the pansy shaped growth of the crystals in the glaze on the surface of the pots. We will be featuring a selection of Diane’s crystaline glaze bowls and vases during the show. We hope you will join us for this celebration of spring!

Wishing you sunshine, gentle showers and a joyous spring time!                                        ~ Terry
