Peter Lenzo
Almost A Conversation: Life Or Death

Spoon It! Fork It! Cut It Up!

Baltimore Clayworks
Baltimore, MD
April 25 - May 30, 2009

A Salon Show of ceramic implements/ DOMESTIC TOOLS: chop sticks, forks, knives, ladles, picks, pincers, prongs, scoops, shovels, spades, spoons, spreaders, stirrers, tongs and/or what you will.

Some pieces directly convey the essence of the task, other forms further elaborate with unique design, style and material focus connoting layered messages beyond the implied function, others reference an intended ritual, a setting and an elaborate, descriptive backstory.

See a slideshow of selected images from the exhibition.
