Made in America

California Pottery is an important category of ceramics and a living legend of the craft is potter Tom McMillin. In 2006, the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts selected Tom McMillin to be the first artist in residence. This opportunity allowed him to create work for an exhibition in Beatrice Wood's own studio (another legendary name in American ceramics) and the ability to use her glazes and kilns. The chartreuse piece above is from McMillin's own studio during the late 60s, closer to the time the photo below would have been taken.
