CERAMIC TOP 40 | 2013
exhibition of artists under and over age 40 currently working in ceramics
November 1 – January 25, 2014 presented by Ferrin Contemporary and Red Star Studios at Belger Crane Yard Studios, Kansas City, Missouri
Ceramic Top 40 | 2013 presents art work by individual artists, collaborators, and design partners – half over and half under age 40 – drawn from the finalists of juried submissions and by invitation. These artists are currently working on the cutting edge of current processes, ideas, and presentation concepts in conceptual utilitarian and sculptural ceramics.
The exhibition emerged from the need for a fresh overview of contemporary ceramics. The increased integration of ceramic art and objects in recent exhibitions at museums and contemporary art galleries has increased media attention and awareness of the importance of the medium of clay in our time for this generation of makers and collectors.
This survey of contemporary ceramic art features the work of established masters continuing to break creative ground alongside the next generation of artists who are developing a strong root system of their own at mid career.

Copper is an endangered element, but we still use it in our everyday lives. The screen you’re reading this on wouldn’t exist without copper. Come and see how we tell stories with copper, thanks to artists Clare Patey (London) and Matthew Moore (Phoenix).
