ArtMiami Posting - CLAY/CERAMICS in Miami  2103 -  photographic day-by-day diary showing the integration of clay/ceramics into the fair scene.  By sifting through the multiple shows to review how this material is gaining recognition, it is clear that ceramic artworks fall into multiple categories simultaneously - art/design/decorative arts - and is no longer segregated by placement in specialized markets or shown exclusively by specialized dealers. 

Fine artists are now embracing the material as one of many mediums they use to express ideas using ceramic ready-mades, found objects, outsourcing and their own hands/kilns in private studio.  The material is no longer the sole domain of trained ceramicists and results are surprising, challenging and vary in quality.  Long term values of ceramic works by these artists will be interesting to watch as the recognized media established masters of the post war generation passes and their works gain in price while the collections assembled in the 80’s and 90’s are de-accessed. 

It is clear that categorization and market strength is based on intent/context of the artist/designer/sculptor/potter and their gallerist/curator/showdirector.  But, in the end, it is up to the viewer/collector/curator to place the selected works within a preferred system of categorization/collection/presentation.  In other words - and this filter is more about words than it is about any individual artworks - determining quality in ceramics/clay is in the eye of the beholder.

Art Miami - the biggest of the satellites - lots to sift through - primary and secondary material all media.
