Artist of the Day- Ron Nagle (click on image to view individually)

In 1966 I graduated from art school and headed for S. F. to join my then boyfriend …my now husband while he studied at his 5th college, Berkeley. I developed a friend ship with a guy teaching pottery at the SF Art institute and was therefore often in the ceramic studio throwing pots.

Ron Nagle was teaching there and producing wonderful, tiny, useless, cups with amazing, shiny, brilliant glazes. I think the part that intrigued me most was the ‘useless’ part. Ceramics=useful. But these tiny cups were so much more!!! And so Nagle has continued…making tiny, gorgeous sculptures.
