- Finalist, Art (Adult Nonfiction)
The artist Beatrice Wood, renowned luster glazed ceramist born in 1893, was known as the "Mama of Dada" and the "Queen of Luster." Her work played with sexuality, but the aesthetic was often more comic than erotic. Now featured in over 100 museums across the world, Wood is often quoted for her recipe to a long life, "art books, chocolates, and young men." This book features risqué drawings of Beatrice Wood’s intimate relationship with a married couple during the 50s-60s.
