Can You Drink from That Cup?
Erik Gronborg, MA
This lecture will be presented by artist Erik Gronborg, centered on his unique ceramic work. Gronborg’s ceramics are inspired by the notion that, in many great cultures and throughout time, the craft of ceramics has been raised to a fine art. Each culture, whether Chinese, Persian, or eighteenth-century French, has a unique style, yet all share certain principles and values. The challenge to ceramic artists today is to make objects that share those universal principles and at the same time are clearly contemporary works of art.
Instructor: Erik Gronborg, a Danish-born artist, received his BA and MA degrees in Art (Sculpture) from UC Berkeley and has been a professor of art at various universities and colleges for more than 25 years. Gronborg’s sculpture and ceramics have been exhibited widely throughout the U.S. and in several European countries and Japan. A major retrospective exhibition of his art, titled The Erik Gronborg Experience, has been on display at the Mingei International Museum in Balboa Park since August 2016.
