We're exceptionally pleased to announce that Benjamin Cirgin has joined us as our new Ceramics Artist in Residence, Technician, and Instructor! 

Bio: Benjamin Cirgin (b.1979) worked as a craftsman building furniture and renovating historic homes before earned his BFA in ceramics and sculpture from Indiana University Bloomington, and his MFA from the California College of the Arts in San Francisco, California.  Benjamin’s work questions the readily accepted norms found in mass media imagery, popular culture, and the anthropocentric nature of the human obsession with objects.  He positions himself (out of necessity and curiosity) as an active participant in the consumption of domestic objects, built environments, and an active member of the working class community to present an alternative engagement with the objects and processes that he find simultaneously confusing and mesmerizing.
