About the artist:
He was born in 1952, in Chicago, IL. However he grew up in California. His family part owned businesses in white ware ceramic manufacturing. He first tried to attended college studying sciences, but stopped going and started working in his families factory. After some time he went on to get his BFA in ceramics at the Kansas Cite Art Institute, and his MFA at the New York State College of ceramics.
In his work he tries to:
- Connect to the human figure
- Encourage touch & exploration of the eyes by use of surface
- Tries to have multiple recollections in each piece depending on where the viewer is looking at the piece
I like his work because it is asymmetrical and organic. I really enjoy his use of texture/ visual texture and repetition, especially in his bowls, teapots, and large vessel. In his plates he uses complementary colors – blue & orange. I think it is very interesting that he creates proportional objects, while still being quite abstract. Good use of positive and negative space.
