At the recent 25th Anniversary celebration of Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, ceramicists and collectors spoke about what the next 25 years would reveal, not only at Watershed, but also in the creation of ceramic art. The Futures presents the work of nine early and mid-career artists, all of whom have been touched by their experience at Watershed. These men and women are trailblazers and trendsetters as much as keepers of tradition. They were selected for their unique approach to clay, as well as for their commitment to and respect for their craft. A group of dedicated and talented artists, these ceramicists are equal to the changes and challenges of their field. They are becoming the future of ceramics, and this show honors their journey.
