Hot Ticket: When earth goes ethereal

Published June 29, 2006

Given their humble, earthbound components, ceramics have a broad stylistic latitude, fired by the imagination of the artist and a hot kiln. An exhibition at Clay and Paper, 350 Main St., Dunedin, explores some of that variety in "A Passion for Pottery III - Let's Celebrate Florida Pottery." It features 10 potters from around the state: Jason Lachtara, Ken Jensen, Gail Snively, Jack Boyle, Katherine Mathisen, Ira Burhans, Charlie Parker, Glen Woods, Peter Streit and John Tilton, whose covered porcelain vessel is shown above. The free opening reception is 6 to 9 p.m. Friday. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. (727) 736-0934.
