E3: Bruce Dehnert on Artistic Schizophrenia and Beginner's Mind
Bruce Dehnert on how thinking like a writer makes him an unusual ceramist. We’ll cover the benefits of bringing technology into a classroom, the differences between teaching at a university and a small craft school, and why informing people about the lives of great artists is an important part of ...
We will miss him for sure. Victor was a great friend. We had a personal bond going back to the time of my birth as a ceramic artist. He inspired me. His quiet reclusiveness and private thoughts, his generosity and embracing energy were compelling always. His love of ceramics and its history, of making and the glaze only he could conjure were touchstones for so many engaged in ceramic art. What elegance, what intelligence of line and completeness of shape were wrought by his hands, heart and mind. There is no explanation for his brilliant work as an artist, but the fact of a deep abiding gift that is so rare as to be an enduring mystery. Victor was funny, charming and always serious. He cared so much.
