The Human Condition: The Stephen and Pamela Hootkin Collection of Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture

September 5 to November 30, 2014

Clay often connotes function and utility — think crockery, teapots and bricks. The thirty-five artists showing over 100 artworks in The Human Condition: The Stephen and Pamela Hootkin Collection of Contemporary Ceramic Sculpture, use clay to build heroic figures, mimic riveted steel, and even riff on a classic tea set that’s anything but functional.
