By the 1960s there was a faction of academically trained ceramicists who had pushed pottery beyond the functional—think vases, bowls, and mugs—to become part of the world of sculpture. Those artists saw themselves as sculptors and inspired the next generation to create fantasies in clay. This exhibition highlights the Museum’s Collection of sculptural ceramics, especially from the 1980s until today.
