Design to Shine

The Museum of Art and Design in New York is currently running a show called the Art of Industrial Ceramics. I believe that Mrs. Rose and I saw this show at the Gardner in Toronto last year. It was really fantastic. Beautiful work and a wide variety of styles and objects.
The show is running through September 13th, so check it out if you are in the city.

Object Factory: The Art of Industrial Ceramics is the first major U.S. museum exhibition to survey contemporary innovation in industrial ceramic production and the renaissance of ceramics in art and design today. The exhibition explores how artists and designers are reviving interest in ceramics through collaborations with industry that enhance and sometimes subvert the industrial process. Object Factory presents works created for leading manufacturers as well as artworks by independent artists and designers. Both non-functional and functional works are highlighted, as are important technological advances in ceramic material that allow for its use in electronic appliances, cutting implements, and other surprising products.
