With Fire: Richard Hirsch is the story of ceramic artist Richard Hirsch, and an examination of the work for which he is so widely celebrated. This richly illustrated book presents the life of an artist whose career spans some of the most important developments in the American Clay Movement. Hirsch established a connection with the legendary Raku and Ohi families, whose influence created a lasting pedagogical and creative link to the West that continues today.
Hirsch is one of 40 regional artists invited by the Gallery Council to interpret works in the MAG collection for Art Reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years, on view through April 21st.
