Peter Voulkos' 'Rondena': A Totem of 1950s American Craft

Design Senior Specialist Meaghan Roddy on pioneering post-war ceramist Peter Voulkos' 'Rondena', a groundbreaking work created at the apex of the artist's career. The work is monumental not only in scale, but in the extent to which it breaks from the norms of ceramic forms of its time, ultimately redefining the use of the medium in art history.
