This exhibition brings together the work of twelve artists from the United States and Canada who undermine the decorative and comfortable domesticity usually associated with crafts. Though crafts have too often been considered the stepchildren of the more intellectual and elevated “Fine Arts”, these subversive crafts people acknowledge the realm of the familiar and homey everyday object as a powerful milieu to provide an intimate, experiential and incisive commentary on the emotive conditions of contemporary life. Artists: Laura Baird, Kate Boyan, Lou Cabeen, Nancy Edell, John Garret, Anne Kraus, Keith Lewis, Paul Mathieu, Matt Nolen, Richard Notkin, Leslie Sampson, Jane Sauer, Joyce Scott, Barbara Todd, and Lillian Tyrell.

"Garth Clark's friendship with Beatrice Wood began in 1978, when he interviewed her for his book A Century of Ceramics in the United States: 1878-1978. It was a turning point for both. Wood, a ceramic artist and famously free spirit of the Dada era, was 85 years old. Although she was still producing pottery, her sales were slow and she despaired over her financial future. Clark, a much admired art historian and author, became her patron and close friend. Three years later, when the Garth Clark Gallery opened in Los Angeles, its premiere exhibition was Beatrice Wood: A Very Private View. The show - a financial and commercial success - was the first of dozens of Beatrice Wood exhibitions hosted by Clark over the next seventeen years, until her passing in 1998 at 105 years of age." "Now, three years after her death, Clark has produced an illustrated memoir of his cherished friend. Gilded Vessel presents Wood's incomparable ceramic forms in photographs of exceptional beauty and clarity; it is the first book to feature this work extensively in large-format color reproductions. Biographical photographs document her friendships with fellow artists ranging from Marcel Duchamp to Anais Nin to Lily Tomlin. These images are perfectly complemented by Clark's wry and affectionate narrative."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

This is the first in-depth survey of a Japanese artist whose work has created a new and radical language in ceramics. Born in Nagoya, Japan, but living and working in the U.S. since the early sixties, Jun Kaneko has achieved international renown through his exhibitions, public arts projects, lectures and workshops. He is best know for his "dangos, " large-scale painted forms whose richly glazed surfaces communicate a humanity that belies their huge size. Susan Peterson's thoroughly researched yet highly readable text traces Kaneko's artistic development, examining key moments in his life and interspersing them with previously unpublished statements from the artists and his contemporaries. The text is accompanied by stunning illustrations of his work at the various stages of his career, providing a complete overview of his prodigious oeuvre.

"Eden Revisited is the first full-scale monograph presenting a survey of one of America's most ingenious ceramic artists, Kurt Weiser. Shaped from his influential childhood experiences during the baby boom years, the artist demonstrated an early disposition for the visual arts, encouraged by his parents and teachers. While attending the Kansas City Art Institute, he became a protege of Ken Ferguson, a highly acclaimed ceramist and educator who quickly recognized Weiser's abilities and determination." "Illustrated with signature works, Eden Revisited presents an artist's journey that mirrors the evolution of American studio ceramics since 1975. Exhibition curator Peter Held reviews the artist's unique upbringing and discusses Weiser's early development. Ulysses Grant Dietz, curator of Decorative Arts at the Newark Museum, provides a stimulating overview of china painting and how Kurt Weiser utilizes this technique to advance his artistic vision. Award-winning writer Edward Lebow provides a thoughtful and witty analysis of key works from throughout Weiser's career, delving into a rich pool of sources and inspirations. Also included is a comprehensive chronology as well as extensive exhibition and bibliographic listings."--BOOK JACKET.
