About the Exhibition
Living with Clay featured ceramic artists of local, regional, national, and international significance with a wide range of traditions including studio pottery, the 1960s clay revolution, and today’s contemporary innovations. In the gallery, viewers "entered" the homes and lives of collectors through their exhibited belongings including furniture, rugs, and lathe objects, creating a lived-in history for each collection. Living with Clay is documented by a full-color catalogue published by CSUF.
