Often cited as a key force within the “revolution in clay,” Mason changed the perception of the medium from craft into fine art, mixing Western and Eastern influences. “Geometric Force” attests to the range of the visionary ceramic artist’s innovation and experimentation in clay by featuring his career-defining works. For example, the six-foot-tall Orange Cross (1963) encapsulates many of Mason’s evolving concerns, including tensions between geometry and materiality, while smaller works show his ability to shift his scope in terms of form and scale.
