Back by popular demand\, the Frank Lloyd Gallery is ple ased to announce the opening of Frank's International House of Ceramics\, Part Two. This group show unites seven ceramists f rom all over the world\, reflecting the international scope of the gallery. While three of the artists from IHOC\, Part One are making second appearan ces\, they will be joined by four additional artists\, creating a new and e xciting mix of ceramic materials and styles from around the world.
This time\, we're including work by two British ceramists. Elizabeth Fritsch has been a leading figu re in British ceramics since the 1970s\, and her work is characterized by i ts sharp profiles and architectural qualities. After meticulously smoothing her hand-built vessels\, she colors them with dry matte slips and geometri c motifs. Jennifer Lee also hand-builds her graceful\, unglazed vess els\, and she achieves her singular colors by incorporating metallic oxides into the stoneware clay bodies of her pieces.

Japanese-American artist Akio Takamori will m ake another appearance\, this time with one of his signature envelope vesse ls\, as well as a small hanging sculpture\, both from the 1980s. Sugimot o Sadamitsu\, also from Japan\, is regarded as a living master of the I ga style\, and his work is highly regarded in his home country. Including b oth Iga and Shigaraki ware\, his ceremonial ceramic objects are rugged in a ppearance\, their coloration resulting from the accumulation of ash on thei r surfaces. Mexican artist Gustavo Pérez was also included in IHOC P art One\, and is showing several of his more abstract pieces\, which refere nce his earlier architectural vessels. Despite the change in form\, Pérez's work remains recognizably his own.

IHOC Part Two is completed with works by two more of our Ameri can artists. Ralph Bacerra's large covered vessels incorporate a var iety of elaborate non-western techniques\, and demonstrate his commitment t o the beauty of the decorated ceramic surface. Finally\, Adrian Saxe joins the exhibition for the second time\, with a series of teapots from t he Sèvres manufacture in France that riff on historical French ceramics.

Frank's International Hous e of Ceramics\, Part Two offers a second look at Frank Lloyd Gallery's inte rnational roster of ceramists. These seven artists work in a diverse range of materials and methods\, demonstrating how artists from different culture s draw on and interpret the world's rich ceramic traditions.
