Throughout his career, James Turrell has pushed us to a new understanding of light, which in the case of Lapsed Quaker Ware is perhaps best understood by its absence. The story behind Lapsed Quaker Ware is expansive and enormous thinking, but also intimate and personal. Lapsed Quaker Ware—a collaboration between Turrell and Irish ceramicist Nicholas Mosse to make crisp black basalt ware, inspired by 18th-century basalt ware made by Josiah Wedgwood—has most recently been on view at Hancock Shaker Village and MASS MoCA, and the catalog includes color photos throughout and essays by James Turrell, Nicholas Mosse, Linda Johnson, Jonathan Rickard, and Jennifer Trainer Thompson.

James Turrell’s work has been exhibited in art institutions around the world, including the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the National Gallery of Art in Canberra, and the Long Museum in Shanghai. Nicholas Mosse is one of Ireland’s most beloved potters. 136 pages. Hardcover.
