From the elegant, ceremonial tumbler to the comfortable simple mug, an exhibition of 71 works from five countries offers a surprising sample of the many ways contemporary artists interpret the cup in “Drink This! Workhouse International  Ceramic Cup Show.” Juried by internationally recognized ceramic artist and professor Sam Chung, the show presents lively and unusual approaches to the ceramic drinking vessel. The 71 works represented here were selected from hundreds of entries from ten countries.

Sam Chung, Juror of “Drink This!”

“There were cups that told a story that transcended the object itself, while others created an innate craving for a drink that fit the cup’s character. These were the cups that pushed me over the edge.”
