First Wednesday Art Talk – Let’s Talk Tabletop: The California Ceramic Tradition
Independent docent speaker, Avril Angevine, will be presenting a talk on California Ceramics, including the work of Sausalito artist Edith Heath, coinciding with the Edith Heath exhibition at the Oakland Museum from January 29, 2022 through October 30, 2022.
Let’s Talk Tabletop: The California Ceramic Tradition
Pottery has been a part of human culture for some 50,000 years—archeological digs from around the world–and in your own backyard—routinely turn up intriguing shards. California’s ample deposits of clay and talc insured a strong pottery tradition here, and California potters have played a leading role in the development of this humble and beautiful craft. Learn about some of the state’s most interesting clay crafters, from studios in Berkeley, on Catalina Island, in Southern California—familiar names like Arequipa, California Faience, Bauer, Metlox, and fascinating individuals like Marguerite Wildenhain, Jade Snow Wong, and Edith Heath.
