Artistic Inspiration: Rick Dillingham (1952-1994)

Rick Dillingham, (1952-1994)

1989

Raku; ht. 9, dia 10 in.

Dillingham was known as much for his contemporary ceramics as for his scholarship of the pottery traditions of the North American Indian and published classic texts such as Acoma and Laguna Pottery and Fourteen Families in Pueblo Pottery. This ‘shard’ vessel grew out of his restoration work at the Laboratory of Anthropology in Santa Fe. His works are broken and decorated with glazes, gilded, or painted before reassembling. His work can be found in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Mint Museum of Craft and Design, and Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Artistic Inspiration: Betty Woodman

Things emerge in my studio from a seen image or experience that gets recalled in whatever work I am doing. The work becomes a conduit of the memory of a painting, a landscape, architecture, or some other visual stimulus. Once it starts to manifest itself in my art, the topic and subject then gets further researched in books, visits to museums, or by another trip.
