Art, Craft, Mischief and Ceramics
A Lecture and Demonstration by Mark Boguski
Mark will give a slide lecture on his own art work and share his thoughts on the topic of art versus craft. He will give a demonstration of various wheel-throwing techniques.
Mark Boguski is an artist and teacher. He graduated with a Masters of Fine Art from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 1991. His functional and sculptural ceramics have been exhibited throughout the United States and are included in public and private collections. For the last 20 years, Mark has taught classes at colleges and universities in the greater Bay Area, including Ohlone College, Cal State East Bay and City College of San Francisco.
