Aspects of Ingenuity and Innovation: A Potter’s Perspective on VMFA’s Ceramic Art Collection

Request Program

From Greco-Roman pottery to Annabeth Rosen’s clay sculptures, the VMFA’s ceramics collection includes examples of not only great artistic achievement but technological invention as well. Greek red and black figure ware, Koran sanggam inlay decoration, San Ildefonso Pueblo black ware, high fire celadons, and Japanese tea ceremony vessels are but part of an enduring, endearing legacy. Steven Glass, VMFA’s Resident Potter, will discuss these various concerns as well as highlighting contemporary art issues through the lens of the Annabeth Rosen exhibition ” Fables. ”
