SANTA MONICA, CA.- Back by popular demand, the Frank Lloyd Gallery announces the opening of Frank's International House of Ceramics, Part Two. This group show unites seven ceramists from all over the world, reflecting the international scope of the gallery. While three of the artists from IHOC, Part One are making second appearances, they will be joined by four additional artists, creating a new and exciting mix of ceramic materials and styles from around the world.

This time, we're including work by two British ceramists. Elizabeth Fritsch has been a leading figure in British ceramics since the 1970s, and her work is characterized by its sharp profiles and architectural qualities. After meticulously smoothing her hand-built vessels, she colors them with dry matte slips and geometric motifs. Jennifer Lee also hand-builds her graceful, unglazed vessels, and she achieves her singular colors by incorporating metallic oxides into the stoneware clay bodies of her pieces.

Japanese-American artist Akio Takamori will make another appearance, this time with one of his signature envelope vessels, as well as a small hanging sculpture, both from the 1980s. Sugimoto Sadamitsu, also from Japan, is regarded as a living master of the Iga style, and his work is highly regarded in his home country. Including both Iga and Shigaraki ware, his ceremonial ceramic objects are rugged in appearance, their coloration resulting from the accumulation of ash on their surfaces. Mexican artist Gustavo Pérez was also included in IHOC Part One, and is showing several of his more abstract pieces, which reference his earlier architectural vessels. Despite the change in form, Pérez's work remains recognizably his own.

IHOC Part Two is completed with works by two more of our American artists. Ralph Bacerra's large covered vessels incorporate a variety of elaborate non-western techniques, and demonstrate his commitment to the beauty of the decorated ceramic surface. Finally, Adrian Saxe joins the exhibition for the second time, with a series of teapots from the Sèvres manufacture in France that riff on historical French ceramics.

Frank's International House of Ceramics, Part Two offers a second look at Frank Lloyd Gallery's international roster of ceramists. These seven artists work in a diverse range of materials and methods, demonstrating how artists from different cultures draw on and interpret the world's rich ceramic traditions.
