DESCRIPTION

World-renowned Japanese print scholar, Helen Merritt, first ventured to Asia to study the traditions of Japanese pottery.  This intimate memorial exhibition features some of the private works of ceramic figurines, wall pieces, and simple pots that Merritt created while writing her many sholarly tomes on the graphic arts.
