About The Event
Join the Clayroom team and Peter Pincus on Friday April 1st from 7- 9 pm for his artist talk. Pincus is well known for work that combines exquisite form and intense color through porcelain vessels and tile compositions with tedious slip cast molds. Driven by inquiry, his practice blends color theory, the history of decorative arts and cutting-edge technical experimentation in ceramics. He now teaches as a Professor at Rochester Institute for technology in New York while he maintains his art practice.
"I produce three-dimensional paintings out of pots. The big challenge is to study and make objects that have a distinct location in the home, using our familiarity toward them to instigate new discussions about the role of the vessel in our place and time. I focus on containers that are status symbols saved for special occasions, generally deemed distinct because of the value of what they hold rather than for what they are." -Peter Pincus
