Every art movement has its rebels, even ceramics. In the 1920s a group of ceramicists began experimenting with reducing the oxygen in a kiln which would leave unique finishes on their pieces. Their reputation grew throughout Los Angeles as many wished to be listed in the ranks of the avant-garde ceramics group. They were essentially the closest thing ceramics would ever get to its version of Warhol’s Factory. Conceived by Carmel artist Mark Tanous, the collection includes a wide range of styles from vases, pots and art objects. The exhibition runs through July 18 and will begin with an artist reception on June 18. [LC]
