Wares of the World: Asian Influence in Contemporary North Carolina Ceramics focuses on the wide-ranging influence of training, aesthetics, and traditions from places including China, Japan, Korea, and Thailand on North Carolina ceramics. North Carolina potters have long apprenticed with Asian masters and taken trips and residencies to work and learn about foreign techniques, bringing back concepts that shape everything from glaze recipes to kiln shapes. In turn, ceramic artists hailing from Asia have also settled in North Carolina and practiced their craft, offering new viewpoints to their communities. The trading of ideas between artists across the globe has undoubtedly shaped the pottery that is created in North Carolina.
