The 1st Bunting Biennial Ceramics Symposium was a great success!
We are delighted to announce the success of the 1st Bunting Biennial Ceramics Symposium with the theme, Clay Embodied: Ceramics and the Human Form held at the Museum on February 22-23, 2013. The symposium began on Friday with a fantastic lecture given by ceramic artist Magdalene Odundo to a packed auditorium. It continued on Saturday with an exciting and well-rounded line up of national and international speakers that included critic and collector Garth Clark; Bonnie Kemske, ceramicist and editor of Ceramic Review; and our own curators Dr. Jeannine O’Grody and Dr. Emily Hanna. In conjunction with the Alabama Clay Conference and through the generosity of Dr. and Mrs. Peter D.
