This  32 page exhibition catalog was designed by Mark Murphy and features the writing talents of Lou Zona, Butler Institute of American Art Director, and Marianne Berardi, PH.D. is a historian of Dutch and American Art, based in Cleveland, Ohio.

Here is an excerpt from Marianne’s essay : “She discovered it nearly 30 years ago, and since then has relished the way she can scrape sharp tools against the ink washes she applies to its surface, exposing the bright white kaolin clay beneath. Drawing against this whitest and most durable of all the earth’s clays—the same remarkable material from which fine Sèvres, Meissen and Chinese porcelain is made—is like sculpting a relief or making an engraving.”
