Clay's Tectonic Shift transcripts online

Resource comprises transcripts of interviews with artists and art historians conducted by the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery (Scripps College, Claremont, California) in relation to their 2012 exhibition "Clay's Tectonic Shift: John Mason, Ken Price, Peter Voulkos: 1956-1968." The interviews and exhibition were part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., a city-wide project that focused on the postwar (1945-1980) art scene in Los Angeles.
Dr. Mary Davis MacNaughton, director of the Williamson Gallery, described the concept behind the exhibition and catalog: "Mason, Price, and Voulkos changed the conversation in ceramics from craft to art, creating fired-clay sculpture that was unprecedented in ambition and originality. The exhibition presents important works in this development. These three artists were the catalysts for a new ceramic scene and a definitive shift in the way ceramics were understood. From that point until the present day, clay has simply never been viewed in the same way again."
