Toshiko Takaezu: Portrait of a Ceramic Artist (DVD)
Item No.: 40027


gift wrap?: 

Renowned for her extraordinary pottery and highly respected as a teacher, Toshiko Takaezu is one of the most significant ceramic artists of the 20th century—and the 21st.

This timeless program, filmed both in New Jersey and the artistís native Hawaii, presents the life story of the internationally acclaimed potter.

Film clips of Ms. Takaezu at work—shaping clay in her studio, demonstrating pottery techniques at Princeton University, and overseeing raku-firing—provide illuminating insights into her philosophical creative process, as do interviews with ceramic artists Claude Horan and Jennifer Owen; gallery owner Charles Cowles; Paul Smith, director emeritus of the American Craft Museum; poet Stephen Berg; and the artist herself.
