Join us in welcoming the prolific George Bowes to the Ceramics Program. George imbues both functional vessels and sculptural objects with bold pronouncements on the many ironies of humanity, society and politics. Occasionally biting, endlessly quick-witted, the sentiments always elicit lively reactions. His distinctive use of bold color and vivid pattern on vessels for home use speak of his ideas of beauty and vitality and live as a refreshing island in the landscape of functional art.
