THIS is inspiring.

I stumbled upon this very cool fund raiser while browsing designsponge this morning. Wow. Beautiful wares, some of my favorite contemporary ceramic artists, positive activism - this kind of thing gives me hope that change is possible - something I really needed to be reminded of this morning. Here is an excerpt from Sarah Archer's essay 'Kitchen Table Politics':

On October 15th, 27 top American ceramic artists will unveil a diverse group of cups, plates and other pots called "Obamaware" as a fundraiser for Barack Obama's presidential campaign. What a great idea! A convergence of the handmade aesthetic beloved by progressive Americans, a 'green' object you can use over and over, and a way to support the arts during difficult economic times. What better way to support the candidate for change?

The wares shown above are part of the auction. The platter is by Jill Oberman, and the mugs are by Victoria Christen.
