From the Morris Museum Collection

The works of Albert Green, Master Potter (1914–1994) reflect the artist’s inspiration by Asian ceramics through self-taught, painterly techniques and a subtle sense of earthly color. His personal recreation of Kuan glazes of the Sung Dynasty (A.D. 960–1279) and his harmonious style make him an internationally known master in the field of stoneware, pottery, and ceramic.
