A Bit of Clay History


Originally clay vessels were
rounded so as to avoid sharp
edges, which could crack easily.


Clay was originally fired in pits,
known as
pit firing.


The potter’s wheel was invented
in Mesopotamia between 6,000
and 4,000
bce
.


Stone
glazeware

was created in
Chine as early as 15

Artisans usually got clay from the
earth that was available around
them.

The Funk Art Movement


An artistic movement that
began in the Bay Area of
California in the 1960’s.


Like Pop Art, Funk Artist’s
often depicted objects from
our consumer culture.


Unlike New York, which was
the center of the art world
and focused mainly on
abstract painting at the
time, Funk Art depicted real
objects in ceramics.


Images were often funny to
the point of self deprecating
absurdity.
