From: 5-8:30 PM
Title: Pinon Needle Tea
Show Closes: June 23, 2018
Betsy Williams states, "In my work I focus on conveying a sense of unobtrusiveness and quiet in pieces that serve primarily as vehicles for food and beverage. I illustrate pared down forms with lively glimpses of our world in a restrained color palette. I look for a concurrence of calm and dynamism, understatement and warmth, tradition and originality. Individual pieces meant for frequent use are at the heart of my work, and everything is handmade.
Sometimes I tell a story or ask a question through these pieces by combing components that interact with one another. The overall concept is conveyed in a kind of narrative through the relationship of the individual elements.
Pinon Needle Tea is about what is right here where we live, no brand names, no commercials."
