According to the exhibition organizer, Cary Esser, professor and chair of the KCAI ceramics department, "many pieces in the exhibition reflect an interest in human and animal forms. They reveal a marriage of figure, vessel, and surface that tell personal stories."

In addition to student works, the exhibition features tenured and tenure track faculty who taught at KCAI during the same period: Ken Ferguson, Victor Babu, George Timock, Cary Esser, Paul Donnelly, Jane Shellenbarger, and Misty Gamble.
