Since 1947, The Clay Studio in downtown Philadelphia has served as a nonprofit educational institution, gallery, and studio dedicated to the teaching, creation, support, and promotion of the ceramic arts. With the generous support of a prestigious Responsive Grant from the Henry Luce Foundation's Program for American Art, The Clay Studio has launched The Clay Studio Collection Project, documenting and researching the objects from its collection of contemporary ceramic art. The Clay Studio's Permanent Collection consists of more than 600 artworks made by emerging and established artists who have served as Guest Artists-in-Residence, Resident Artists, and teachers at The Clay Studio over the past 25 years. Representing overlap in their Collection by these superb artists, The Clay Studio is proud to offer lots 93-99 with sale proceeds to benefit the housing and care of its Permanent Collection.—Courtesy of Freeman's
