Bowl Me Over
The Third Lillstreet International
The Lillstreet International is a juried exhibition that is designed to address contemporary issues in and and the ever-changing scope of ceramic art. The exhibition is open to all artists working in clay. Each year the show will take on a different theme. This year the focus is bowls, versatile and functional forms that offer many opportunities for experimentation and diversity in form as well as surface, glaze and firing.
