Paul S. Briggs: Material Shapes in Clay
January 20 — March 23, 2022
Early in his career, Briggs became well known for creating high relief clay vessels that evoke the delicate symmetry of plant forms.

Briggs’ slab-formed vessels have the spiritual resonance of ancient architecture and the muscular beauty of varied Chinese ceramic traditions.

She also prioritizes the cultivation of relationships – both ancestral and contemporary – in every aspect of her life and practice.
