City Sine Cera

Sine Cera is the root form of "sincerity," from the Latin meaning "without wax." When Romans made pots, they often sealed the base with wax, claiming they were thus watertight, but in time, the wax melted or wore away, rendering the pots useless for liquids. Pots not finished with wax were inscribed "Sine Cera" to prove that they were sound, and from this evolved the word "Sincere." City Sine Cera explores the urban environment’s influence on contemporary ceramic artists. Exhibiting artists scrutinize the conceptual and material language, inspired by a sincere inquiry into the urban landscape. These artists include: David East, John Oliver Lewis, Sarah Lindley, Bobby Silverman, Adam Welch, and Merrie Wright.
