Flowers from Fire

During the late 19th century, artistic rebellion against mass production took many forms. In the world of design, shapes reflecting nature and growth, experiments with techniques and influences from non-European cultures led to the flowering of Art Nouveau. Focusing on ceramics and other objects from the United States and Europe, this exhibition explores the artists and innovations that led to a new international style.
