The Miller Ceramic Art Collection features masterpieces that highlight the artistic ideals of numerous luminaries of mid-20th century through early 21st century American ceramic art. In addition, the collection includes important examples of European and Japanese ceramic artworks of the same time period. The collection is a reflection of the interests of Marlin Miller, Marcianne Maple Miller, Marlin’s first wife, a potter, (1933-1989) and his current wife Ginger Gouger Miller, a painter and stitchery artist.
The collection is uniquely well informed by Marlin Miller’s depth of understanding of materials, which began in the field of ceramic engineering and led for a period of time to a leadership role in one of the largest brick companies in North America. His interest in brick and its role in architecture informs a keen eye for surface texture, dimension and materiality.
