" Peter Callas and Marc Leuthold, USA Sculptures "


Peter Callas was born in Jersey City in 1951 and now works outside town, and is without doubt one of the founding fathers oft he younger ceramic scene in the USA: he has something of the position of a pioneer in North America. In the early 1970s, Callas travelled to Japan looking for a position as an apprentice. He was drawn to the legendary Six Old Kilns, and in particular to the ones that fired in an anagama. In 1976, he built the first kiln for this firing technique in the USA.

In contrast we see the porcelain and stoneware sculptures of Marc Leuthold, which in spite of their dimensions might also be called delicate. Leuthold was born near New York in 1962 and is now a professor at the State University of New York. With his subtly creative intellect, he gives his delicately worked pieces a shimmering poetry that makes them metaphors for change in all materials and forms.
