Sadashi Inuzuka, professor of Ceramics at University of Michigan, will =
present CLAY: BEYOND THE OBJECT at North Country Studio Workshops at =
Bennington College, Vermont, January 26-30,2005. This hands-on workshop =
will explore the clay object as it relates to space, light and movement =
around it. The workshop will include exercises in flexible thinking, =
demonstrations, presentations and discussions and will end with an =
installation of unfired work.
Inuzuka received his MFA from Cranbrook in 1987. He has been honored and =
recognized by the PEW Foundation, the Pollack-Krasner Foundation, and =
international collectors. Inuzuka's artwork has included major =
installations at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia and the Appalachian =
center for Crafts in Tennessee.
Inuzuka states about his work: I make site-specific installations, which =
address the relationship between the natural world and human society. =
My current works focus on ecological imbalance and the impact of =
pollution or invasive non-native species on local habitats. Each =
installation is an aesthetic and physical interpretation of these =
issues, and the sculptural elements are metaphors for the natural world =
and our relationship to it.
