Mark Stromm Tulipiere

In 1637 Tulip Mania reached its peak in the Netherlands with tulip bulbs trading for astronomical prices. It was there in the 17th century in the Delft Potteries of the Netherlands that the tulip vase was born. Originally a 17th century Delft stacking form with multiple openings for displaying tulips. The Skagit Valley to the north of Seattle rivals Holland in its tulip growing fame and it is there at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Conner that ceramic artists will revisit this unique vessel form. Tulipiers or Tulip Vases , as a form, present a unique challenge and creative opportunity for ceramists. Carol Gouthro, guest curator and ceramist , invited 32 northwest ceramic artists to create Tulipiers in their own style.
