May 15, 2019

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: California Ceramics

When Californian ceramists became active in the early 20th century, their geographic independence from long-standing ceramic capitals meant that they weren’t bound by the traditions of their trade or by a preexisting critical infrastructure. A variety of works featured in the May 19, 2019 Modern Art and Design Auction help chart the history of California’s innovative and untethered ceramic practices.

Peter’s Auction Pick of the Day: Designs at the end of the 20th century

Artist Spotlight: Glen Lukens

Artist Spotlight: Glen Lukens

Missouri-born ceramic and glass artist, Glen Lukens (1887–1967), is celebrated as one of “the great artist-teachers” of the twentieth century. Through his workshops, writing, and experiments, he sparked a sweeping interest in traditional pottery methods that had been discounted with the advent of new technologies and trends. At the time, America’s formal ceramic tradition was rooted on the East Coast where many of European artisans had settled. As a result, Lukens’ independent approach to the discipline emerged liberally and untethered. The artist developed a practice characterized by a rough, organic aesthetic that proposed a visual counter-argument to the precise and decorative styles of his predecessors.
