Tom Balbo Art

Tom Balbo has spent most of his life in and around Cleveland, Ohio. Born on December 19, 1954, he attended public and private schools in the Cleveland area. In 1977, he graduated from Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio with a BA in Studio Arts. The following year, he began his master’s degree at Syracuse University's College of Visual and Performing Arts in Syracuse, New York, where he was awarded a Syracuse University Fellowship Grant in 1979 and 1980, and a Ford Foundation Grant. His work at Syracuse focused on ceramics and printmaking, but he also developed interests in papermaking and sculpture. In 1980, he completed an MFA at Syracuse in Studio Arts. Balbo’s earliest work was principally in ceramics and printmaking, interests that he keeps today. As his interest in papermaking grew, his work turned increasingly towards expressing his artistic creativity in this area, and he gained substantial technical expertise as well. He continues to work, principally in paper and ceramics, and divides his time between a warehouse amazingly converted to an enchanting studio, and his gallery. He lives in a condominium in beautiful and historic Shaker Square, and his amazing terrace garden is a delight to visitors, and a featured pictorial story in the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
