“ORIGIN” is an exhibit that explores the concept of home and how it is defined, personally and culturally, by looking at different personal narratives, family histories, and cultural practices. It is the process of learning more about oneself and discovering the “true” self. It involves understanding what makes a person unique. Also, it requires people to be open to new experiences and willing to take risks to better understand who we are and what we want out of life. It can also involve reflecting on one’s past, understanding one’s values, and exploring one’s passions.

As I consider applications, I have no preference for a single style or approach. I hope to see examples that emphasize practical form and function, sculptural exploration that maintains functionality, and metaphorical teapots that may not function at all—the so-called “teapot as sculpture.” I welcome teapots made with any clay bodies, firing methods, and forming processes. My hope is an exhibition that represents the diverse range of teapots being made in contemporary ceramics.
