Lynne_TanThis exhibition focuses on objects that contain and deliver food, drink or seasonings; objects that work together and yet can stand alone. Game, Set, Match highlights service sets that relate to one another through their forms as well as their surface decoration. This show will feature the best in ceramic design: hand-made objects that have a playful twist on functionality or that possess a quiet craftsmanship. (Above: Lynne Tan)
