Please join HCCC for a cup-throwing demonstration by United by Hand artist Ehren Tool, a former marine who served in the 1991 Gulf War. Tool uses his potter’s wheel to make cups that expose the large disparity between fiction and the realities of war. For the artist, each cup represents a human life. He uses the utilitarian object’s familiar form to engage the user in a dialogue with the graphic photographs and press-molded war paraphernalia used to decorate each cup’s surface.
Tool will be throwing cups on the wheel that will be incorporated into the exhibition. Many of these cups will be given out to the public at the United by Hand Memorial Day Weekend Closing Event on Saturday, May 27. Clay generously provided by the Ceramics Store, Inc.
