"The Dramatic Vessel", Part II / by Meredith Harper

We just received a copy of the beautiful catalogue for "The Dramatic Vessel" exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art, Shigaraki, and were delighted to see how elegantly and sensitively highlighted Staffel's Light Gatherer is on the cover.  His Light Gatherers truly epitomize the concept behind this exhibition.

The elegantly designed 188 page, full-color catalogue has a high-gloss wrap-around cover with textured end papers.  Staffel's porcelain works are featured in the second part of the exhibition, translated as "The Beauty of Plans", alongside fellow masters Peter Voulkos, Rudy Autio, Warren MacKenzie, Marilyn Levine, Ken Price, Ron Nagle, Adrian Saxe, Ralph Bacerra, Betty Woodman and Adam Silverman.   

Congratulations again to curator Hiroko Miura and Museum of Contemporary Ceramic Art, Shigaraki, on their exhibition.
