Notre Dame ceramics department

While it may not be a complete representation of a department, a professor’s artwork can be an important part of how a potential student approaches a university’s program. So after nosing around Ball State’s website a week or two ago, I tried to find works online done by their faculty. I was quite surprised not to find any, at least not in five minutes searching. I suppose I could have looked a little longer, but I expected — as people of my generation do — relevant results for a simple and fairly specific search to appear near or on the first page of Google.
Since Sarah Hempel Irani mentioned to me that Notre Dame covers tuition for MFA students, if you can actually get in, I’ve done a little nosing around on their website. It was much easier to find works by Bill Kremer, ceramics prof at Notre Dame. I liked this installation of his work well enough that I thought I’d share it.
I think the one front and center in the photograph is my favorite, at least from what I can tell. This show was at the Charlie Cummings Gallery in Gainesville, Florida. (Glad I didn’t have to transport all of those large pots from Indiana down to the swamp!)
