The New York Ceramics Fair

We are thrilled to participate in The New York Ceramics Fair, opening today and running through January 26th. Leslie Ferrin has curated us into The Bacchanalistas: Passions + Pleasure, which focuses on artists whose practice is informed by ceramic history and themes of abundance and excess. I can't stop thinking about The Secret History, one of my favorite books of all time, and drawing parallels between that, our work, and this show...

Nothing like making lithophanes in China - the clarity is unreal. The image above is from a cultural revolution propaganda poster, which seemed super appropriate to appropriate.
Side note: GMD has been listening to The China History Podcast nonstop, which is definitely worth checking out. They are fascinating.
