A distinguished MassArt alumnus and forefather of contemporary American ceramics, William Daley is known for his monumental, highly texturized ceramic works. This exhibition will include three ceramic sculptures and preparatory drawings. Along with his artwork, Daley's film 
Mud Architect, images of the artist's studio, and a selection of his tools will provide a window into the artist's creative process and joyous practice. Daley will be honored with The Society of Arts and Crafts Medal for Excellence in Craft established in 1913 to honor master craft artists.
