Guest Artist Appearance// Erica Moody & Kreg McCune – August 31st, 2019 11am – 6:00pm
Two Maine craft artists team up for a duo guest artist appearance this month at (KōT) Contemporary Craft, 6 State Street in downtown Ellsworth, Maine. This is the fifth event in a series of summertime trunk shows showcasing the work of American craft artists. Award-winning artists, Metalsmith Erica Moody, and potter Kreg McCune draw on the beauty of Maine and a yankee sensibility creating practical pieces for the kitchen and home. Moody using traditional metalworking techniques and an old analog industrial machine creates flatware and serving pieces that have been featured in publications such as Bon Appetité & Bake From Scratch magazines. Kreg McCune is a studio potter who works in stoneware and porcelain creates pieces connected to a timeless aesthetic drawing on the landscape of Maine. He strives to craft functional pots that are beautiful alone and in combination with one another. Both these artists work play off the idea of elevating everyday tasks through thoughtfully designed pottery and servings pieces creating a unique connection to food and heritage – a shared passion of both Moody and McCune.
