"This exhibition is a meditation on one of the oldest art materials known to man, one of the least limiting and most versatile mediums. Cavin-Morris combined selected works by some of the most sophisticated ceramic artists we exhibit, including Rebecca Buck, Simcha Even-Chen, Melanie Ferguson, Yukiya Izumita, Kentaro Kawabata, Young Bin Lim, Shozo Michikawa, Akihiro Nikaido, Rafa Perez, Sarah Purvey, Tim Rowan, Keiichi Shimizu, Phyllis Kudder Sullivan, Kai Tsujimura, Mike Weber, and Jane Wheeler and set them alongside ceramic sculptures from the Middle East, India, Greece and Pre-Columbian America. This exhibition highlights the intense demands of clay from culture to culture, accentuating the fluidity of its eternal potential."
