 From 1976 – 1984, ten ceramic artists operated out of a dynamic gallery and cooperative workspace in the historic A. H. Davenport building in East Cambridge, Massachusetts. Named Clay Dragon Studios, this collaborative became a springboard for creativity and an influential foundation for numerous artists in contemporary ceramics. Now 30 years later, this retrospective exhibition showcases the rich range of mature styles, diverse materials, and new developments of former Clay Dragon Studios members.
