Artists are responsible for shipping to and from the show.

Functional objects differ from decorative objects through user interaction. With the intent that the object is handled and used, certain aspects of its formal creation are called to attention. Comfort, familiarity, and usability all introduce essential considerations for the functional object. Ware/Wear seeks to gather and celebrate these concerns in the form of cups and earrings, both longstanding objects in human history that have been found in some form in every civilization.

Please submit up to 3 cups, and/or pairs of earrings. Your submission(s) must be fully functional and usable.
