Born in Chicago in 1952, Chris Gustin is an American potter who gained his ceramics education at Kansas (BFA) and New York (MFA) in the 1970s. He has both taught and developed his practice ever since and his work has been the subject of many solo and group exhibitions in the US and internationally.
His work is curvaceous and appealing at a very human level. Work that demands multiple viewings and a desire to inspect closely, no singular visual impression is left from examining one of his creations. Movingly tactile and rich with colour and movement, his pieces exhibit a balance and tension between maker and process.
His works are all anagama fired with natural ash glazes.
