ABRAMS CLAGHORN GALLERY
“One Nest” investigates balancing what is good for human beings with what is beneficial for other species and the planet – our one nest, our only home, and a shared one. Recognizing that all life and ecosystems on our planet are deeply intertwined, we share these impressions in clay, ink and light. We believe in art as agency for change. Artists, historically, have been both witnesses and the raw material for envisioning the future in challenging and critical times. These ARE critical times. It is critical that we do our art. It is critical to make the peaceful revolutionary changes that allow the world to repair. Look closer with us.

Funk was a Northern California art movement based mainly in Davis and Berkeley throughout the 60s and 70s. This movement exaggerated and elevated the medium of ceramics, often using political or autobiographical subjects. In response to the cool, detached minimalism in New York, Funk art made use use of bright colors, lewd humor, and bizarre narratives. This zany new approach to art brought a group of people together in the early 1960s that would become well-known funk artists in the coming years. The early days at UC Davis where funk art flourished were made possible by pioneers like Robert Arneson, Roy De Forest, William T. Wiley as well as like-minded individuals in the Bay Area like Peter Saul and Clayton Bailey. Starting in the mid 1950s, Pop art also challenged traditions of fine art by including imagery from pop culture such as ads, comics, and mundane mass-produced objects. One of the aims of Pop art is to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony. Some of the pioneers and leaders in this movement were Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and Jasper Johns. Although some Funk artists continued to make art for many decades, the movement itself ended in the late 70s. Meanwhile, Pop art became a much larger movement that
continues to this day.

Blue Line Arts
Since the first ceramics were created, like Venus of Dolní Věstonice, before 25,000 BCE and pottery vessels that were discovered in Jiangxi, China, which date back to 18,000 BCE, people have been fascinated with clay. Today, artists continue to astound us as they push the boundaries of our preconceived ideas of what ceramics represent. From playful pieces disguised as everyday objects, to finely detailed vessels, ceramics delights and surprises us in its evolution.
Whether you work in a more traditional style, or prefer completely outlandish creations, we showcase your vision and techniques from around the world during this annual show.

Stoneware Stories- Folk Pottery of Edgefield, South Carolina
The Deep South has a unique place in the history of American ceramics. In the Northeast, potters commonly used salt to glaze stoneware in the European tradition. But in the southern United States, where salt was a more precious commodity, potters often applied alkaline glazes on high-fired stoneware. Pottery ranges in color from pale green to dark brown with glazed surfaces that vary from smooth and glassy, to drippy and textured. The technique originated in Han
Dynasty, China (206BCE–220CE) and was pioneered in the United States by South Carolina physician and newspaper editor Dr. Abner Landrum (1785–1859), who most likely studied published accounts of Chinese alkaline glaze formulas. Landrum established the Pottersville Stoneware Manufactory around 1815 in the
Edgefield District, the west-central area of the state that is rich in kaolin clay deposits and the alkaline ingredients—wood ashes or lime—required to melt the additional glaze elements.
Traditionally, Southern potteries were small, family-owned seasonal operations, consisting of farmers who sold their wares locally to supplement their incomes. In contrast, Edgefield’s potteries were ambitious enterprises. By 1850, numerous entrepreneurs and investors had opened factories to fulfill the demand for stoneware required for food storage and preservation in the agriculturally rich region. Manufacturers shipped pottery via railway to planters and merchants throughout the state. They placed newspaper advertisements, hired journeymen potters, and applied makers’ marks. Enslaved laborers and, later, freed African Americans, engaged in all aspects of Edgefield stoneware production, from digging and mixing clay to loading wood-fueled kilns, and peddling wares. Others served as “turners” or potters, producing exceptional examples of Edgefield stoneware.
