Since 1985, when I received my Masters of Fine Art at the University of California at Davis, I have been working as a professional artist in ceramic sculpture. My main interest has been in large figurative ceramic sculpture. In undergraduate and graduate school I was fortunate to have studied with the artist that put figurative ceramic sculpture on the map, Robert Arneson. Since then I have been showing in galleries and museums around the world and have been commissioned to do several public and private sculptures in bronze, fiberglass and ceramic.
Your website, DIRECT flickr or DIRECT facebook links where your work can be seen.
ALoha Tony. No worries. I can barely keep up with FB and have kind of given up on trying to keep up with this Crafthaus. It's just too much computer. I prefer to be in the studio! I know you and your bro are on the outs, I just thought I'd mention it so you knew I was a "legit" artist and not one of your "groupies" LOL! LOVE the new "BOB" work! He was always one of the most influential guys in my life. When I was in H.S. (a budding) ceramicist, he was my hero. Well, him and Marilyn Levine. Bob for his politics and funk and Marilyn for her technique. My mom still has a clay leather jacket I copied of hers when I was a kid. I finished the giant sculpture I was working on when I wrote you the last note. Hallelujah! It made it to Davis without breaking in three enormous crates. Cost a bloody fortune to ship! Praying it sells. I'll see ya on FB. Until later...
Aloha Tony. I have loved your work for years!!! I am rep'd by your brother and I understand you did Wesley Anderegg's web site, which is awesome! He, Donna and Iz are good friends. Would like to meet you some day. DO you go to CCACA? Ia m currenty working on my first really big figurative piece and can use all the help I can get. Have been getting some help from Lisa Reinertson and Esther Shimazu but am still having "issues". Working on the fourth incarnation of the damn thing. Would love input from you too.
NCECA 2013 Emerging Artist Linda Swanson makes us think about ceramic materials in a new and dynamic way. Her installation, site specific, fired and unfired work all has an emphasis on time, material and transformation. Linda generously shared her time and thoughts with me about her current studio practice and the path that has led her there. I hope you enjoy this interview with Linda Swanson. You can see more of her work at: …See More
"I have started in on a new idea that I'm pretty excited about. However, I've been preoccupied with job application deadlines and a kids summer camp I'm helping with. I hope to have several new pieces incorporating steel by the end of…"
H U N G E RWith diet as a way of life for many in our culture, we’ve been taught that one should Eat to Live. We've forgotten that from the 18th through the early 20th century, being fat was a sign of health, prosperity, and an attraction at a time when food was scarce and many went hungry. Hunger, in all its…See More
