The Ceramics Series – “Porcelain and Place: The Sutnar Tea and Dinnerware sets”
February 25 @ 10:00 AM
Emily Pazar, the assistant editor of Art Reference at Oxford University Press New York and former Curatorial Assistant of Craft, Design, and Fashion at The Mint Museum, will conduct a discussion about a tea set and dinnerware set in the Mint’s collection. These pieces were designed by Ladislav Sutnar (1897-1976) for Krasna Jizba, a company aiming to make progressive design available to a wide consumer base. The porcelain sets were produced by Epiag in Loket, Western Bohemia (now in the Czech Republic) between 1928 and 1932. Pazar will examine the ways that Sutnar’s distinct brand of functionalism was both influenced by and a reaction to the Art Deco movement context of European ceramics in the first half of the twentieth century.
