They are best-known for their ceramic vessels featuring simple forms and beautiful glazes. This show was organized by the Ventura County Museum of History & Art and Craft & Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles. The exhibition was held at the Ventura County Museum from March 4-May 22, 2005; the Craft & Folk Art Museum from March 10-July 3, 2005; the Oakland Museum of California in July 2005; and the Mingei International Museum, San Diego in October 2005.
