"A broad survey of more than fifty ceramic artists who worked in the Los Angeles area in the decades following World War II, Common ground, as a book and exhibition, celebrates the art that is central to the mission of the American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, CA. The artists selected for Common ground all had a direct connection to Millard Sheets, an artist, art educators, arts administrator, and designer, whose activities and ideology had an enormous impact on Southern California in the middle of the twentieth century. The essays take different perspectives on the region's dynamics, together presenting an in-depth analysis of the complex and diverse factors that created a fertile ground for ceramics."--Dust jacket flap.
