The Ceramic Forms Of Leza Mcvey

Edited by Martin Eidelberg.

At the height of her career in the late 1940s and early 1950s, Leza McVey was one of the best-known American ceramists. The strikingly original organic forms that she created won prizes and critical acclaim. Her decision to build ceramics by hand and to shun the traditional symmetry of the potter's wheel marked a pivotal point in the evolution of modern studio pottery and her monumental scale equalled the grandeur of her artistic vision. A long overdue recognition of the scope of her achievement and influence, this abundantly illustrated scholarly book explores McVey's career from the 1930s through the 1960s. Amongst period photos and color plates of her most significant works, The Ceramic Forms of Leza McVey contextualizes McVey's work against the broad panorama of American art and design: from regionalism and the WPA in the Depression era to Cranbrook Academy in the postwar years and to the emergence of the postmodern era.
