From pulverized fragments of the Earth's crust comes clay. Shaped by the artist's hand and made permanent by fire, the medium offers infinite options for the imagination. Clay may be nature's greatest contribution to the expression of the unquenchable human spirit. From folk art face jugs to decorated vessels to figurative ceramics, Earth+Fire celebrates 50 years of influences that have shaped the genre of contemporary clay. Enjoy works by 35 artists representing 15 states, all from the MAS Permanent Collection.
