Technically experimental and aesthetically ambitious, the vases made by French potters in the years around 1900 pushed the boundaries of the ceramic medium. The recently acquired Robert A. Ellison Jr. Collection of European Art Pottery includes pieces by the master ceramists Ernest Chaplet, Auguste Delaherche, and Jean Carries, works of imposing size, beautiful in shape, and dazzling in their glazes. These works will be shown with others that inspired them, ranging from Asian ceramics to German stoneware.

Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
