From the 1950s through the 1970s crafts, especially ceramics, came to represent the free spirit of self-expression and experimentation that characterized west coast living. Common Ground: Ceramics in Southern California 1945-1975 tells the stories of a generation of studio potters, who were often self-taught or trained in traditional apprenticeships but helped develop college curricula for ceramics. They advanced the technology of the wheel and the kiln, developed glazes and techniques. By establishing professional organizations, such as the American Craft Council, and publishing craft-themed magazines including Craft Horizons and Ceramics Monthly, their expertise and experimentation were shared. Through their efforts, galleries and museums eventually recognized ceramics as a valid art medium.
