Ceramic Indoor/Outdoor "Aquarium Bench" by Michael Gustavson



This curvy, colorful seat is brought to life with artist Michael Gustavson's masterfully detailed and gorgeously textured glazes in a variety of colors. The two hand-built ceramic elements can be spaced apart for individual seats, or together to form a functional bench. "Aquarium" can be installed indoors as a unique home accent, or placed outdoors in temperate climates as a unique garden bench. Michael Gustavson graduated from San Jose State University with a Master of Fine Arts in 1980. A master in raku ceramic using a wide range of glaze colors and textures, he creates vessels, wall sculptures, and substantial totemic forms to be placed in the garden. All are intricate exercises in the harmony of form, texture, and color. Equally successful as free-form organic sculptures and abstract paintings, the pieces incorporate lusciously textured glazes that perfectly complement the surface quality and shape of his compositions. In his most recent series of powerful tectonic forms created for indoor or outdoor spaces, Gustavson continues to express his painterly textural compositions using his extensive palette of glazes in his California studio. Michael Gustavson's artworks are included in private and public collections throughout the world. Such major corporations as IBM, Kaiser Permanente, Seagate, Cranbrook Museum, and Eastman Kodak own pieces by the artist. Most recently his work has been sold to collectors in London, England and Norway.
