Clary Illian has been producing ceramics since the early 1960s, after graduating from the University of Iowa’s distinguished ceramics department and a two-year residency with world-renowned British ceramicist Bernard Leach. Clary Illian: A Potter’s Potter surveys many of the best works from her fifty-year career, including pots in stoneware, porcelain, and earthenware, the three major media in which she has worked. It is a revelatory look at one of America’s premier potters.
This catalog was originally produced as a companion to the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art’s Clary Illian pottery retrospective in 2012–2103.
This catalog was published by the Cedar Rapids Museum of Art and is distributed by the University of Iowa Press.
