Gustav Hamilton’s sculptures and paintings exist as auto-fictitious objects where real-life events merge with fictional narrative. In this space of total authorship, family heirlooms have as much relevance as his hopes and dreams about imagined encounters in the art world. Gustav currently teaches at the 92nd Street Y where he is also the Ceramic Technician. Prior to moving to New York City, he was a visiting professor at Colorado State University. He received a BFA from the University of Montana and an MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University.

This class will explore the broad field of ceramic sculpture. Students will be taught hand-building techniques including coiling, working with hard and soft slabs, carving, and using sprig molds. Surface decoration techniques will be taught using glaze and underglaze. Technical demonstrations will be based in conceptual inquires that explore the potential meanings of ceramic objects, including notions of functionality, tactility, translation, and absurdity. This will be a workshop style course where we will learn from each others’ experimentation and imagination. Students are encouraged to work boldly, and to develop their own unique directions. Basic ceramics experience is helpful, but this class is open to all levels.
