Stanley Rosen: Radical Roots
by Karen Gover
Untitled, 1970s. Despite the radical openness and pluralism that characterize contemporary artistic practice, the phrase "ceramic sculpture" can still be interpreted as an oxymoron. There are exceptions, of course, such as Turner Prize nominee Rebecca Warren's evocative figures and Ken Price's colorful abstractions. But because clay is so closely associated with functional and decorative objects, and its role in the sculptor's studio has traditionally been as a means to an end--as with cast bronzes--its status as a fine art medium has been marginal at best. ...see the entire article in the print version of March's Sculpture magazine.

Untitled, 1970s. Stoneware, 4 x 10.5 x 10.5 in.
