South Gallery – Contemporary Craft Wing

South Gallery – Contemporary Craft Wing


This gallery offers a unique look at the diversity of styles and intense creativity of expression in the medium of clay from the 1960s to present day. Selected from the FIA’s permanent collection, the objects in this gallery incorporate traditional aspects of ceramics in new and interesting ways, blurring the lines between craft and art. Not only are they playful and provocative, they are also utilitarian and decorative. Many of these works were given to the museum by Dr. Robert and Deanna Harris Burger and Sidney Swidler.
