Drawing upon visual and culinary themes inspired by the textures and colors of Peru, Japan and India, ceramic and glass artists collaborated with Sapor Cafe & Wine Bar, in Minneapolis, MN, to blend art and food- and made a bold statement about the blissful collision of form and function in contemporary art and cuisine.
Nick Moen (Nick Moen Studios, Asheville, NC) and Kathryn Adams (Asheville Glass Center, Asheville, NC), collaborated with fellow artist, David Swenson, of The Northern Clay Center, and restauranteurs, Tanya Sienbenaler (chef and co-founder) and Julie Steenerson to create Pairing Pottery Dinner, held December 12th at Sapor Café and Bar in the North Loop Neighborhood of Minneapolis, MN. Other ceramic and glass artists who contributed to the event include: Hayden Wilson, Erin Paradis and Victoria Claire Dawes.
The artists and Sapor Café provided an unforgettable evening of art and food, blending the beauty of the work with fine cuisine. All food and beverages were plated and served in hand crafted, hand blown objet d’art.
