Willa curated and participated in RITUAL UNMOORED: Six Jewish Ceramists, who fashion vessels, abstract or figurative sculptures, and wall pieces, to reimagine the ritual object, and other traditional forms for the future. Works were exhibited at the PSU, Broadway Gallery, March 22 - September 15, 2017, in conjunction with NCECA's (National Council on Education of the Ceramic Arts) National Conference held in Portland, March 22 -25, 2017.
"It was a pleasure to discover the diverse and unique work of the other Ritual Unmoored ceramists, and to become familiar with the practices and rituals that inform their form-making. I conceptualized this exhibit to explore how identity is shaped by place, cultural heritage, spirituality, or lack thereof. What does it mean to define oneself as a Jewish artist who chooses to work in clay in today’s zeitgeist?"
