American Clay: Modern Potters, Old Time Pots

January 30, 2021 - May 2, 2021

Coming to Fuller Craft Museum in January 2021, American Clay: Modern Potters, Old Time Pots explores the concept of “traditional” ceramics within a contemporary context by featuring the work of 12 ceramic artists who interpret specific historical styles. Items on display will highlight such issues as the interplay between historical fidelity and personal inspiration, evolving definitions of “tradition bearers,” and the influence of various marketing and education criteria, supplemented by discourses on how participating artists approach these issues.

Curated by Stephen Earp, American Clay builds on a growing interest in traditional or “folk” art among many of today’s ceramic artists by featuring work reflecting such 17th-18th century styles, including Redware, Delft, Mocha, and Rockingham.
