Best known as a ceramic artist, Bennett Bean’s colorful, gilded pieces are widely admired. Much of the work in these pieces is done post-firing, when Bennett applies paint and metal leaf to the earthenware forms. Much like the layering on these pots, Bennett uses his accumulated experience in art and life to add depth, texture, and light to all his projects.
This lecture is presented in partnership with the James Renwick Alliance as part of their Distinguished Artist Series at the American University Museum at the Katzen Arts Center. This lecture is free and open to the public. To register for Bennett Bean’s accompanying workshop on December 8th, click here.
