The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) is proud to present Ceramics A to Z: AMOCA’s Permanent Collection.

Clay has been part of human culture for centuries, but it was not until the 8th century that the first alphabet was introduced. Just as the letters are the building blocks of the alphabet, letters also symbolize the building blocks of AMOCA’s collection. Each of the 26 letters of the alphabet will be used to highlight topics in AMOCA’s permanent collection with a focus on geography, techniques, and artistic styles.

While the vocabulary of ceramics cannot be limited to just 26 topics, we will use this exhibition to share the rich and diverse range of ceramics works in AMOCA’s permanent collection.
