Object Talk – Tending the Fires: Recent Acquisitions in Clay
March 28

Learn more about Fuller Craft Museum’s extensive collection of contemporary craft objects!

Join us on the last Sunday of each month for a lively discussion of two objects from Fuller Craft Museum’s collection and discover new insights on art and craft from our skilled Museum Educators.

Object Talks are approximately 45- to 60-minutes in length and registration is required.

Contemporary craft is marked by new interpretations of traditional technique and innovation in design and materials. As styles, techniques, and meanings in the field progress, what endures is the work of the hand and the stories shared by the maker and the object. In the short time that the Museum has collected craft, an effort has been made to acquire the best examples of objects by artists who, by the very nature of their work, invigorate the conventions and the definitions of their media.

March 28, 2021 | Tending the Fires: Recent Acquisitions in Clay

This month we will discuss two works from Tending the Fires: Nancy Jurs,Volante and Cheryl Ann Thomas, Shade.

Tending the Fires: Recent Acquisitions in Clay presents recent additions to Fuller Craft’s ceramic collection. Exhibited works represent a range of processes and conceptual approaches in clay, from Cheryl Ann Thomas’s slumped, coiled sculpture to Jun Kaneko’s painterly “dango” to Steven Young Lee’s deconstructed pot. Figuration also comes into play, with strong examples by Patti Warashina, and Tip Toland. Fuller Craft Museum is proud to shine a light on the clay triumphs of these renowned ceramicists while proudly displaying the institution’s recent collecting achievements.
