The subtitle for this exhibition, Around the Bend and Over the Edge, is Seattle Ceramics 1964–1977, which is a little like saying New York Painting 1949–1965. This is a golden era, when West Coast American potters broke from the restrictions of the 1950s into Pop and funk and op, all under the brilliant, elegant influence of Japan. You’ve got Robert Arneson’s giant stack of Oreos, Irv Tepper’s surfers riding a slice of meringue pie, Patti Warashina’s gleaming Airstream-turkey hybrid, Howard Kottler’s queering of American Gothic. The display is a little uptight, but the pleasure is polymorphous.
