Whether glossy and kitschy figurines or rough and paint-splattered densely populated ceramic installations, these works use the varied textures of pottery to push the human form from the corporeal to the transcendental. These artists manipulate, strain, and stretch the human frame to transform recognizable figures into something imaginative, dynamic, and often tortured.

These ceramics, invoke classic blue and white pottery traditions that sprang out of Asia in the 14th century to sail around the world as a hot commodity on global trade routes. Younger artists repurpose the iconic blue-and-white motif that recall origins of the porcelain trade for a contemporary audience.
