“We are always thrilled to welcome fresh new participants to the New York Ceramics Fair,” says Liz Lees, who co-produces the fair with Meg Wendy, “and the notable specialists joining us in 2014 are truly exceptional. They are bringing an impressive range of offerings to the Fair’s already diverse examples of porcelain, pottery, glass, cloisonné and enamels.”
