Plum Bottom Opens The Ikebana Show

Plum Bottom Pottery & Gallery invites the community to Art Show 3 – The Ikebana Show on April 9, 10 am – 4 pm. It’s time to think spring and enjoy these handmade pottery pieces that have their roots in Japanese flower arranging traditions. The Japanese term Ikebana means “the art of flower arranging.”

Plum Bottom resident artist Chad Luberger has been hard at work making a new collection of these functional and beautiful art pieces for the show. “I love exploring this form, there are really no limits to what shape an Ikebana can take,” says Luberger. “These pieces look fantastic with a simple Hosta leaf or even a flowering cherry blossom branch. They are the perfect adornment for the kitchen with all the blossoms that are about to erupt.” Luberger will be in attendance to answer any questions about his work.

The gallery will also feature the hand crocheted work of New York artist Lisa Cottone. Her woven matrices of sterling silver, gold and colored metals create beautiful “flowers” in the form of earrings and necklaces. Cottone’s work is extremely detailed, lightweight and is extremely durable because of the strong crochet stitch.

Plum Bottom Pottery is located 15 minutes north of Sturgeon Bay or five minutes south of Egg Harbor on Highway 42 then east on Plum Bottom Road (1 mile) to 4999 Plum Bottom Rd. For more information visit
