Carter & Cavero Announces the Arrival of Tito, Award Winning Potter from Spain

Carter & Cavero is proud to announce the arrival of Tito, the award winning potter from Spain, to our Red Bank and Long Branch, New Jersey stores on June 26-28th, 2009.

The Spanish award winning artisan potter, Tito, whose exquisite clay pottery is displayed and sold exclusively in the United States at Carter & Cavero’s Red Bank and Long Branch, New Jersey stores, will be returning to the states for several events on June 26, 27 and 28. The first event will take place on Thursday, June 25th at the Red Bank store from 5pm to 8pm. On Friday, June 26th, Tito will appear at the Long Branch store from 6 pm to 9pm. On Saturday, June 27th, Tito will be in the Red Bank store from 11am to 1pm and from 5pm to 8pm. On the final day of his appearances, Sunday, June 28th, Tito will be in the Red Bank store from 11am to 1pm and in the Long Branch store from 3pm to 6pm.
As he did during his previous visit to Carter & Cavero in 2008, Tito will create vessels reminiscent of ancient times using a potter’s wheel and clay. He will also be discussing the history of Spanish pottery while demonstrating the use of ancient tools and techniques. Tito was awarded the Spanish National Artisan Award in 2008.

Through his love and dedication, Tito, has developed a unique collection representing the golden age of pottery from the Renaissance period. His work is also greatly influenced by Persian origins where the green color is seen in many of his pieces indicating the most important legacy from this time. Tito’s work demonstrates a high technical level of fretwork and shapes which are derived from Iberian times, as you will see in his work.

Carter & Cavero is an avid supporter of the arts. This event is free and open to the public. For more information contact us at info@carterandcavero.com or call (732) 219-0506. For more information about Tito and his work go to www.alfareriatito.com.
