Ceramics have traditionally been the "humble art"... and generally throughout the text Clark and DelVecchio follow suit in their approach. They don't call themselves "collectors", preferring "custodians" instead. And Clark has been an art historian and author for decades, previously compiling the seminal 1981 book "American Potters". Clark's personal mantra for art books is that they should "be accessible without being dumbed down." To that I say, "amen." The writing in this book stays within those guidelines very admirably. Clark begins with a witty history of his involvement with ceramics, including his memories of a few eccentric potters and patrons. Clark and DelVecchio started collecting and dealing ceramic art when they met the legendary Beatrice Wood, who complained to them y about how poorly her pots were selling. Beginning by selling pots out of their home, Clark and DelVecchio went on to establish landmark ceramic galleries in Los Angeles and New York. They were also involved in a ceramic retrospective in the late 70's which was championed by the notorious critic Clement Greenberg.Read more ›
