On a quiet Monday, while on the way to Plaza Art Supply, I stopped at Lee Arts Center to visit an extraordinary display of greenware pottery, stuff that was prepared by master potters in workshops and left behind in the studio for whatever reason. The potters mounted these objects from inventory so that everyone can appreciate them.

Unfinished and unfired works like these have their own intrinsic beauty. In a pristine state, one can appreciate the essence of their design and craftsmanship.

Take look at the slideshow. Here is a compendium of the potters whose work is represented here.
