Visiting Info


Diane Levinson, Weapons of Mass Construction, 2011, ceramic (detail)

Wood-fire ceramic art, borne of processes centuries old, also contains aesthetics of modern art in the surface quality of the natural wood ash glaze. Even though the process of wood-fire glazing may seem like magic to the layman, it remains pure on account of the process and ingredients – clay pots and burning wood. We find beauty in the unending variety of the surface quality on wood-fire ceramics. The potter, master of control, must release the work to the fire, to chance. This sacrifice takes a great toll on the artistic ego; no one knows exactly what will happen inside the river of fire.

Artists featured in this exhibition include: Sam Hoffman, Terry Inokuma, Jenny Klein, Marc Lancet, Diane Levinson, Hiroshi Ogawa, Masuo Ojima, Andy Ruble, and Tim Steele .
