CLAY'S TECTONIC SHIFT - JOHN MASON, KEN PRICE, AND PETER VOULKOS, 1956-1968

Clay's Tectonic Shift focuses on artists John Mason (born 1927), Kenneth Price (born 1935), and Peter Voulkos (1924–2002) and their radical early work in postwar Los Angeles where they formed the vanguard of a new California ceramics movement. The three artists broke from the craft tradition that emphasized the function of a piece. Experimenting with scale, surface, color, and volume, their work was instrumental in elevating ceramics from a craft to a fine art.
