Sugar Loaf — On Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15 and 16 the Bostree Gallery is presenting it's second annual exhibit of Teapots and Accessories by Sugar Loaf potter, Andrew Boswell. Tea sets comprised of teapots, sugars, creamers and mugs will be featured. Boswell's teapots have been described as “...round, generous and joyous. They look like happy Buddhas.” - Eugenia Koukounas. These robust porcelain forms are accentuated by high fired glazes applied in multi-layers to create surfaces rich in depth. Glazes to be included are ohata, a sparkling rust-red, traditional celedon green, winter white, gloss black and true (cobalt) blue. These glazes, reflecting the influence of historic Chinese pottery, Japanese pottery and Venetian glass, complement Boswell's modern yet classic aesthetic. Andrew Boswell graduated from the Warwick Valley High School and went on to study ceramics at RIT. Son of potter Ray Boswell, Andrew carries on the family tradition at Bostree in Sugar Loaf. There will be an artist's reception Saturday, Oct. 15 from 6 to 9 p.m. Complementary hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served. The exhibit will be held in the Bostree Gallery special event room located at 1361-A Kings Highway, Sugar Loaf (for GPS use Chester, NY). For more information visit www.bostree.com.
