Clay Today

A catalogue of the Howard and Gwen Laurie Smits Collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.  This publication showcases the collection, one of the most outstanding selections of contemporary vessel ceramics in the world. The goal of this collection, begun in the 1970s, was to gather works by living artists, that showed their diversity, energy, and intellectual concerns. It is composed principally of works from 1979 to 1988, with a core representative of southern California potters. For background on the interwoven histories of English and American studio potters in the development of the clay movement, work of European and especially English artists are represented, including works that illustrate a technique or “moment” to show a specific genre. The catalogue profiles 64 ceramists through biographies, photographs, and discussions of the artist’s work.
