Notre Dame Faculty Ceramic Exhibition at Colectivo Prospect!

Posted: March 11, 2014

bill_kremer_14 copyIn conjunction with the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) Annual Conference coming to Milwaukee this March, Colectivo is excited to host a ceramic exhibition at our Prospect cafe!

March 18 – 22, the Colectivo Prospect Back Room will show work by two Notre Dame faculty members with a bit of Wisconsin in their pasts - Bill Kremer and Chad Hartwig.

Bill Kremer earned his MFA at University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and has been a professor of ceramics at Notre Dame for the past 40 years. He describes his work as sculptural vessels; the forms relate to reflections of both classical vessels and abstract the human figure and are fired in a large thirty-foot long anagama wood-firing kiln for five days.

Chad Hartwig is a Research Associate who received his B.F.A. from University of Wisconsin-Superior before earning his M.F.A. from University of Notre Dame. His sculptural ceramics explore the agency / structure relationships between humanity and the natural environment. As a potter in an unrelated, yet similar manner, he also is interested in how fine-craft objects can elevate every day experiences from redundancy to aesthetically driven endeavor.
