Beaver native Nicole Aquillano completed her reign as Society for Contemporary Craft’s Summer Artist-in-Residence in August. During the program, the Boston-based artist created an exclusive line of functional porcelain tableware for SCC’s Store, celebrating the architecture and historic charm of the Strip District. Says SCC Executive Director Janet McCall, “Her ceramics feel beautiful in the hand and their subject matter strikes a chord with anyone who has an affinity for the unique architecture and history of Pittsburgh.” You can pepper your home with these porcelain beauties when they go on sale in SCC’s Store in October. Specific buildings and vessels are available for pre-order now.
To place an order, call the store at 412.261.7003 x16.
