Visiting Ceramicist Joseph Pintz Lectures at Museum
July 12, 2010
Joseph Pintz’s functional and sculptural ceramic work explores the role that domestic objects play in fulfilling our physical and emotional needs. Inspired by his Midwestern roots, Pintz often recreates hand tools and other seemingly mundane objects. In the process, the dense meaning of these objects is transferred into clay. Both his sculptural and functional works are featured in The Gallery at Museum of Contemporary Craft through July 31.
He will discuss his reductive sculpting technique, muted glazes, terra sigillata at an artist lecture on July 15 in The Lab at Museum of Contemporary Craft.
Pintz earned a Bachelor of Arts in anthropology and urban studies at Northwestern University and completed post-baccalaureate studies in ceramics at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. In 2006, he received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and in 2006–2007, he was a resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts where he was awarded the Lincoln Fellowship. He currently teaches ceramics at Bowling Green State University.
