The Fred Marer Collection Visit
We had our trip to see the Fred Marer Collection at Scripps yesterday. If you ever have a chance to go do so. It is incredible to see all these works of ceramic art in one place. Over and over again while going through the file cabinets filled with treasures and the crates lining the floors you see pieces that you may have only seen in books and magazines. The collection represents ceramic art from the 1950's onward. Peter Voulkos, Jun Kaneko, Phil Cornelius, the list goes on and on. All completely accessible to touch, hold and photograph. This was my second of what I hope are many visits to the collection. I don't think I will ever tire of seeing it and the inspiration I feel after is great!
A special thank you to Kirk Dellman!
