Richard Notkin Visiting Artist: Museum of Glass

RSS Blogger Facebook

Ferrin Gallery

Richard Notkin, Helena, MT - is a visiting artist at the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, WA through August 16.  Notkin, a full-time studio artist who has worked primarily with ceramics for nearly forty years is perhaps best known for his series of unglazed stoneware teapots, inspired by the Yixing wares of China (circa 1500 AD to present), but consciously maintaining a separate cultural identity. While in the Hot Shop, Notkin plans to “continue my bent for strong social/political commentary which would best be actualized in the transparent medium of glass.”
