Instructor: Mark Muscarello
Mark Muscarello first fell in love with clay during high school. His art teacher was a big influence and nurtured his passion and skill for throwing and sculpting. Mark received his BFA in Ceramics from Alfred University in 1979. His own studio practice has been influenced by artists as diverse as the work of Mark di Suvero, Anthony Caro, David Smith, Joseph Cornell, Val Cushing and Wayne Higby who manufacture new synergies from both random and orderly textures. Mark is currently a resident artist at AMOCA Ceramics Studio in Pomona, California.
