Garth Clark and Mark Del Vecchio are life and business partners
celebrating 33 years together and are considered the leading experts on
modern ceramics today. They founded the Garth Clark Gallery in Los
Angeles in 1981, and added New York in 1983. The gallery soon became the
leading space internationally for modern and contemporary ceramic art,
presenting over six hundred exhibitions. Together they also ran the
non-profit group Ceramic Arts Foundation that has published books,
organized exhibitions and held eight major international conferences of
ceramic art and criticism in Syracuse, Kansas City, London and
Amsterdam. The duo has received numerous awards from the Museum of Arts
and Design, New York, the Kansas City Art Institute and other
institutions. Clark, the author of over sixty books, was made a Fellow
of the Royal College of Art and also was the winner of 2005 Mather Award
for Distinguished Art Journalism from the College Art Association.

As gallerists, scholars, authors, and collectors, Garth Clark and
Mark Del Vecchio have helped shape the field of ceramics by expanding
notions of the medium’s possibilities. Their esteemed collection of
ceramics was given to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in 2007, and is
the subject of a 500-page comprehensive catalogue published this year by
Yale University Press. Clark has just competed two new books, Mind Mud: Ai Weiwei’s Conceptual Ceramics and Lucio Fontana Ceramics.
