if you like Noguchi Ceramics you may like this California Studio Pottery

Here is a piece I have from the ubber talented Heather Rosenman.  I sold 2 pieces of Rupert Deese to buy it, but I believe on some level, we need to keep supporting the ongoing tradition of California Modernism and Craft or else we will end up just being nostalgic and Doyle Lane will end up being the new Meissen.  Well not really, his pieces rock, but there is tons of new talent. While a lot of it is referential, I think it makes sense that California is  a strong presence and makes us feel the same way it did 50 years ago, and if Modernism is resonating so strongly with people it is because it is still relevant. Then creating things that are heavily inspired is actually tapping into the current zeitgeist. If  the modernism that happened in the 50's/60's didn't, do you think we would be coming up with it now? Certainly seems to fit .What do you think?
