A key part of the Stories I Tell exhibit, was a collection of cups that were given away, free of charge to members of the public throughout the exhibit, with the goal of making handmade objects more accessible and illustrating how their use can enrich ones daily life.
In exchange for the cup, recipients were asked to send a postcard to the artist with a short story or reflection on using the cup and were encouraged to tag tweets and photos to #storiesitell.
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who took part in the Stories I Tell Cup Project. I fell truly lucky to have met you all and so grateful that you shared your stories with me. Throughout this process I have been humbled by your honesty and generosity—I learned so much more than I had envisioned at the start of this process, and I thank you for that.
Below are photos and postcards of some of the people who participated in this project—more are still trickling in and will be posted as they arrive.
Thank you to the Ontario Arts Council for their generous support of this project.
