American Clay: Modern Potters, Traditional Pots

January 30, 2021 - November 7, 2021

American Clay: Modern Potters, Traditional Pots explores the concept of “traditional” ceramics within a contemporary context by featuring the work of 20 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. This exhibition is sponsored by the Caroline R. Graboys Fund.
