Who says ceramic and porcelain art needs to be tame? Using porcelain as her primary medium, Jessica Stoller will open a body of work, Spoil, at P.P.O.W. in NYC tonight, January 9, 2014. The press release states, "The sculptures in Spoil spill out of decorative materiality into the Rococo maximalist mentality of pageantry, pomp and artifice that are often overlooked as frivolous ploys."

Sometimes someone so awesome lives in our backyard and we didn't even know it. For the past few years, we have been seeing the demented, surreal, incredible ceramic and sculpture work of Crockett, California-based artist Clayton Bailey floating around Tumblrs and blogs, but our colleague walked in our office the other day with a whole explanation of how amazing this man really is. Active in the art community since the 1960s, and a teacher in Wisconsin and Northern California throughout the '60s as well, Clayton just celebrated a 50 year retrospective at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento in 2011.
