Local artist exhibits in CraftBoston
Lulu Fichter of Peterborough will participate for the first time at CraftBoston Spring in Boston. The famed craft show is held at The Boston Center for the Arts Cyclorama on Tremont Street.
Fichter was chosen from among hundreds of applicants. Presented by The Society of Arts and Crafts, CraftBoston Spring is a selective display of 90 artists. The organization’s jury process is known to be among the most discriminating, its mission to ensure contemporary craft of the highest caliber.
The artist’s most recent work are small and large forms she calls sea pods. Fichter pokes and pulls and shapes the fine porcelain into shapes inspired by found objects in nature, such as seashells, bones, driftwood, stones and coral. Fichter is known for her white ware, the emphasis on form rather than color. In order to get the unique color, Fichter puts some of her pieces in the river behind her home to help give them a bone-like hue. The coloring can take about two months to achieve.
Show dates are Friday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
