THE TOSHIKO TAKAEZU TERRACE: The Hunterdon Art Museum’s (HAM) terrace was named in honor of artist Toshiko Takaezu, one of the 20th century’s most influential ceramists. Ms. Takaezu moved to Clinton because she loved the waterfall that separates HAM from the Red Mill. She donated much of her time to the museum, and taught at Princeton University for many years.
