The exhibition features his signature chargers to pristine celadon ewers and canisters. The pieces in the show are dated from 1958 to 2007; evolution in forms, ideas, and surface is clearly displayed in the range of work. Victor was a professor in the Ceramics Department at the Kansas City Art Institute from 1968-2001.
