Wabi Sabi: Imperfectly Perfect, Asian Spice in American Art

When: March 22-April 30 2013

Don’t even try to resist the cuteness of local craftswoman Anne John’s tiny teapots. They’re on display as part of the Charleston Crafts Cooperative’s Asian-themed group show, which features not only bonsai kitchenware, but Japanese-style cracked porcelain vases, glass sushi trays, and kiln-fired sake sets. “This is a unique showcase in clay, fiber, wood, jewelry, paper, and glass,” says Liv Antonecchia, ceramic artist and member of the Charleston Craft Cooperative Gallery. “Each piece in this show was created by South Carolina artists solely with the Asian influence in mind.” If you check out the exhibit on opening night, you’ll be able to take a piece of the night home with you — origami expert and paper sculptor Regina Semko will be on hand to teach you how to make your own origami shrimp. We bet they’d be the perfect size for a tiny tea party.
