40+Years in the Making: Women and Clay

40+Years in the Making: Women and Clay

The women represented in this collection, along with their male counterparts, rejected some of the old traditions and strict standards of art making and were instrumental in elevating ceramics to a recognized art form. They all pushed the established boundaries to explore and extend the limits of their materials.

Evan Quick and I are studio mates and have been friends for 40+ years. One day he described the project he was undertaking for Dimensions 2021 and asked me what I was going to make.
