Reid Ozaki and Company
Remember the teacher who changed the way you see the world? For many ceramics students, Reiz Ozaki has been that teacher. For this exhibition, Reid shows his own work in the company of his former students. This show corresponds with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) conference, Seattle, March 25-31.

Every one of Laurel’s works is like an idea made of clay. Many of the works are made of dozens – even hundreds – of pieces of extruded porcelain or stoneware, and look like three-dimensional line drawings. Other pieces use thousands of hand-formed objects to capture a moment in time in the natural world. Her exhibition will include a spectacular wall of more than 1,500 porcelain cherry blossoms.
