Reviews

"Ceramics have been reborn in recent years, placed firmly in an art content." -Francesca Gavin, Artsy "Ceramic art ... has finally come out of the closet, kicking and disentangling itself from domestic servitude and minor-arts status - perhaps for good." -Lilly Wei, ArtNews "In the past year or so, the 27,000-year-old art form has been making quite the trendy comeback." -Huffington Post
