This exhibition celebrates the work and the life of gay San Franciscan Win Ng, renowned ceramicist and craftsman. A native of San Francisco’s Chinatown, and a graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, Win Ng was among a key group of post World War II artists responsible for establishing a new tradition of American pottery. As a co-founder of the art ware retailer Taylor & Ng, Win Ng established himself as a consummate decorative designer and innovative entrepreneur.
The exhibition consists primarily of Ng’s ceramics, both slab and thrown work, as well as early enamels. It also includes a small selection of paintings that relate to his craft as a decorative designer, and samples of early Taylor & Ng merchandise.
