Artist Sanam Emami: Garnitures & Tableware

Mon, Feb 10, 2014 starting at 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Free, Esther & John Clay Fine Arts Gallery 

The concept of the garniture came to Europe from China, becoming popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. Also referred to as “cupboard sets,” these matched sets of pottery were made for the decoration of mantelpieces, kitchen cupboards and other areas in the home. The pots in the exhibition are designed for the space and scale of the home, meant either for use or as ornamental pots.
