Feeling, Thought and Spirit: The Ceramic Work of Glen Lukens
This exhibition celebrates the work of Missouri-born ceramicist Glen Lukens. At a time when American pottery production was dominated by design and decoration, Lukens forged new rough clay designs and discovered new glazes and glaze techniques. His work married bright colors to raw surfaces and pioneered a new approach to the ceramic vessel. Lukens’ innovations were a boon to the California dinnerware industry of the 1930s. He also worked with glass, paying special attention to the development of the vessels’ colors. An award-winning ceramicist and teacher, Glen Lukens helped change the way we see and interpret ceramics today. The exhibition Feeling, Thought and Spirit: The Ceramic Work of Glen Lukens pays tribute to one of America's innovative twentieth century ceramicists.
