NYC&GF 2015 Ferrin Contemporary MADE IN CHINA booth.

at the Ferrin Contemporary Special Exhibition Booth on the 3rd Floor MADE IN CHINA examines the contemporary, ceramic-centric exchange between eastern and western artists and markets. Marked by ever-increasing cross-cultural collaboration, this contemporary ceramics movement emerging from China is urging a re-definition of today’s export ware.
