Unveiling Toshiko Takaezu

The museum where I work has instituted a new series of mini-installations called "Building the Collection" which highlight recent acquisitions. A line drawing by Matisse began the fun and now we have famed ceramicist Toshiko Takaezu. Quick story: last winter a former curatorial assistant for contemporary craft had finally decided to move to NY after eight years with the museum. Then our contemporary craft curator finds her unpacking the Toshiko Takaezu pieces in tears, because she found them so beautiful and she was leaving. So if you love craft hurry down. They are up in all their glory, christened with a few tear stains from a NY gallery assistant.
