We all know how fantastic Jeffry Mitchell is, right?
Not only does he make incredible things, with excellent craftsmanship, an uncanny grasp on decorative arts history, and a smart conceptual bent that is always a wonderful surprise — he is also a friend, mentor, and supporter of SO many artists (and curators, administrators, others). He totally rules. He had a nice shout-out in yesterday’s New York Times.
AND, when you go to the exhibition’s website, (ICA Philadephila, Dirt On Delight: Impulses That Form Clay), the first thing you see is this amazing pickle jar!
