Claybash 2023 debuting in the main gallery, marks the first in a series of triennial exhibitions showcasing a diverse range of contemporary ceramics from innovative artists across the U.S. Jennifer Martin, executive director of The Clay Studio in Philadelphia, serves as this year’s juror.
HAM’s interest in ceramics traces back to the 1960s when Toshiko Takaezu, a Hunterdon County resident recognized as one of the world’s most influential ceramic artists, actively participated at the museum.
Throughout its 70-year history, HAM has hosted numerous solo and group ceramic shows, many curated by Hildreth York and Ingrid Renard. “Claybash 2023” is dedicated to York, an art historian, curator, and longtime supporter of the museum, acknowledging the pivotal role she played in strengthening HAM and the profound impact her work and wisdom had on the museum’s exhibitions program.
Jennifer D. Martin is the Executive Director of The Clay Studio, Philadelphia, and is also an accomplished artist. Her ceramic work is nationally recognized in numerous exhibitions and publications.
