Joan Takayama-Ogawa: 2013-14 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

Jo Lauria and I devered a paper, "3 Waves of Innovation: Ceramics at Otis College of Art and Design" during the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts (NCECA). Wave 1= Peter Voulkos during the 1950's. Wave 2 = Ralph Bacerra during the 1980's and 1990's. Wave 3 = Joan Takayama-Ogawa 3-D Painting and Clay along with the use of a new product, Paper Clay, in Sculputure. In addition, I went on a tour of the Kohler factory and museum in Sheboygan, WI, and visted the Racine Art Museum where I had three pieces in an exhibition. I visited the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design and saw an outstanding emerging artist NCECA juried exhibition.
