All five of the contemporary ceramists featured in this Houston Center for Contemporary Craft exhibition work in all-white porcelain, using no colored glazes to decorate their objects. As a result, the material, form and surface of each piece become the primary focal points — hence the "naked" exhibition title. The sublime qualities of porcelain take center stage: delicate, translucent, smooth and full of possibility. Says HCCC Curator of Fine Craft, Gwynne Rukenbrod, "To me, there is an inherent beauty and peacefulness in white porcelain objects."
Naked (in the museum's small gallery) is on display July 10-September 4.
