Ceramics: Past the Present


"Ceramics Past the Present," is a title easily read two ways. Are we past the present or is the past in the present. Panelist's Anthony Haden-Guest, Steve Montgomery, and Anne Mulford will present their thoughts on contemporary clay , current trends, what they find interesting and both links and brakes with the past.


The images seen here are almost non consequential but are examples of a generic mix of ceramics past. Each panelist will have a limited number of images. A small amount of Clay will be passed out at the door to everyone and some melding of the many forms made will make a larger piece.

Anthony Haden-Guest is art royalty. He is a critical writer, an important cartoonist, an evolving fine artist and a performer of his spoken word with band in tow. His words tell the true story of the art world as his book, "True Colors" implies and is a must read for artists. His personal dialogues about his experience and first hand encounters with artists is a true art history often missed in books and lecture halls.

Steve Montgomery is a creative mind melded with incredible technical skills that produces trump l'eau industrial detritus on large scale that ends up beautiful, surreal and profound. He is in the collections collections of Major museums including the MET, The Smithsonian, The Museum of Arts and Design, The Corcoran and as well has received Pollack- Krasner Grants and won awards in the east.

Anne Mulford: What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. “Princess Anne” a Museum exhibiting ceramicist is an outspoken community activist,working in provocative, political, sexual and often feminist oriented mixed media installations. Anne has come to the east and has taught all ages and is now with Mud Sweat and Tears as her work evolves.
