The Stone Diary Project II – Oct. 5

 

Opening Reception: Friday, October 5th 6-9 pm

Café Postal, 202 Provencher Boulevard, Winnipeg, MB. 

Show runs October 5th – 19th

 

All books will be available for purchase.

The Stone Diary Project II  is a collaborative venture connecting  artists across media to create unique ceramic books.

The practice of ceramics and bookbinding are both rooted in ancient methods.  The book is a container for thoughts, ideas, memories, emotions.  Likewise, ceramics are containers too – vessels that have long been used for safe storage of sustenance.  Both book and ceramic are functional objects that frequently serve in sacred ways.

Precious and safe yet ultimately fragile, these objects are meant to foster a sense of contemplation.

“There are chapters in every life which are seldom read, and certainly not aloud.”

Carol Shields, The Stone Diaries

The Stone Diary Project – Oct. 6

October 6 – 20, 2017

Opening reception: Friday, October 6th 6 – 9 pm

Cafe Postal
202 Provencher Boulevard
Winnipeg, MB
The practice of ceramics and book binding are both rooted in ancient methods. The book, as an object, is a container for life’s meanings; a way to record, learn and remember.  Ceramics have long been used for the safe storage of sustenance and have fulfilled spiritual purposes.  Both are functional objects that serve to feed us in different ways.  The Stone Diary Project connects one  book binder with sixteen Manitoba ceramic artists to create stone vessels in which to store your thoughts and ideas.  Precious and safe, yet ultimately fragile, these objects are meant to invoke connection and foster a sense of contemplation.
