Studio craft has historically been associated with clay, glass, metal, wood, and fiber. While the spectrum of materials used is much greater and the conversation much broader today, dividing works into categories based on medium does allow for focused investigations. This exhibition showcases clay, glass, and metal works made between 1960 and 1985. In some instances, multiple works by the same artist are shown in order to reflect how their work changed during a span of time when there was a lot of fluctuation in the field.

Artists whose works are featured include Ruth Duckworth, Michael Jerry, Cliff Lee, Marvin Lipofsky, James Lovera, Joel Philip Myers, June Schwarcz, Mary Tingley, and Toots Zynsky.
