Making Ceramic Sculpture with Brendan Monroe

Brendan Monroe is known for drawings, paintings and sculptures of organic landscapes and otherworldly creatures. Art School visited with the artist during a transitional moment when he’d just completed a new body of work in collaboration with Heath Ceramics. Exploring clay as a new medium, Monroe continued his experiments with shape and form, increasing his use of color and experimenting with different approaches to glazing and firing. 

Monroe’s visual vocabulary is inspired by scientific processes and internal landscapes. Combined with the expertise of the artisans at Heath Ceramics, a studio that has been handcrafting ceramic objects since 1948, Monroe’s visions were brought to life from sketches into three dimensional space. In this episode of Art School, learn how clay creatures are sculpted, cast, glazed and fired in a kiln, and hear more about Brendan Monroe’s artistic process.
