Bob Schultz – Ceramic Sculptures and Functional Art

My ceramic art is directly influenced by my study of Buddhist philosophies and my interest in the visual cultures of the East mixed with Western street art themes. The deeper I go, the teachings of the Dharma are filtered through my mind and reinterpreted in the forms and characters I create.

This is expressed through an intuitive, visceral handling of clay as well as the graffiti tags I add to my work. Using cute teddy bears and street art elements also act as a way to lighten the heavy subject matter I present.

By using traditional and contemporary techniques and philosophies, I can create unexpected combinations of the old and new mixed with the East and West.
