OPENrestaurant Presents OPENwater features Leslie Ceramics Glaze

As part of an ongoing collaboration with artist Travis McFlynn and Building Products, Leslie Ceramics underglazes as well as lowfire N-Glazes were used for some large scale water dispensers manufactured by Building Products. You can see the U-5 Navy Underglaze as well as N-60 Valentine Red clearly in the pictures. The pipes dispensed water from local sources in the Bay Area. Here is a description of the event from SFMOMA's Blog :
"OPENrestaurant Presents OPENwater at St. George Spirits Saturday, November 13, 2010, 3:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m.
Sunday, November 14, 2010, 11:30 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.
St. George Spirits, 2601 Monarch Street, Alameda

How does water flow in the Bay Area? OPENwater, SFMOMA's latest collaboration with the artists, chefs, and educators who make up OPENrestaurant, settles at St. George Spirits, a large distillery on the former Alameda Navy base, for two days of culinary proposals and exploration. With video, a 3-D sound environment, panel discussions, and informal encounters with artists, fishermen, biologists, and preservationists, OPENwater will create an immersive experience focusing on the Bay-Delta's food, water, politics, ecology, and art."
