About

Contemporary American ceramic artist Richard Hirsch's pair of "Primal Cups with Stands" #5 and #12 are raku-fired, hand built and hand sculptured. Hirsch creates ceramic sculptures that explore the spirituality and ritual embedded in familiar vessel forms. He imbues his work with the look of age and antiquity by applying certain ceramic surfaces and incorporating other materials such as iron, glass, bronze, and wood. As Hirsch states in his artist statement, "Ultimately, this work is an attempt to metamorphosize the seemingly mundane vessel-object into a sacred entity." They were photographed as a pair, but price below is per piece. Shown from left to right are Primal Cup with Stand #5 (2014) (7.75“ x 9“ x 5“) and Primal Cup with Stand #12 (2014) (7.5“ x 7.5“ x 5“). Signed and dated on the cup by the artist. Additional pieces of Richard Hirsch ceramic sculpture and fine art available through Highland Park, please contact the dealer for more information. Provenance: Acquired directly from Richard Hirsch. Richard Hirsch Brief Bio: In the field of contemporary ceramic, Rick Hirsch has earned an international reputation. He has achieved this recognition by engaging in numerous diversified professional activities. Through efforts in university teaching, exhibits, writing, lecturing and researching he has risen to world-wide prominence. In 1975, Hirsch co-authored a book entitled Raku, published by Watson-Guptill. This was the first comprehensive text to address the new innovations developing in the west that were transforming traditional Japanese Raku. Also, in the same year, Hirsch became a founding faculty member of The Program in Artistry at Boston University. Currently, Hirsch is a Professor Emeritus at The School for American Crafts which is a part of Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY. His university teaching career now spans well over four decades. Repeatedly, Hirsch has participated in several milestone exhibitions and publications. Significant shows include; The Evolution of American Art in Craft Media Since 1945; Echoes: Historical References in Contemporary Ceramics; American Ceramics Now; Raku: Origins, Impact and Contemporary Expression; and Convergencies: The Presence of the Past in Contemporary American Ceramics. Frequently his work appears in book and magazine publications, such as; Overseas Contemporary Ceramic Art Classics by Baiming, China; Raku Investigations into Fire by David Jones, England; The History of American Ceramics from 1607 to the Present by Elaine Levin, New York; World Contemporary Ceramics by Baiming, China; and Firing, Philosophies within Contemporary Ceramic Practice by David Jones, England. Several museums have included his work for their permanent collections. These include; The Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; The Renwick Gallery, Smithsonian Institute, Washington DC; The High Museum of Art, Atlanta; The Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse; The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kansas City, Missouri; The Taipei County Yinko Ceramics Museum, Taipei, Taiwan; and the George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, Toronto, Canada. In 1984, Hirsch was elected as a permanent member of The International Ceramics Academy, a world-wide organization headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. A recipient of a William J. Fulbright Research Scholar Award in 2002, Hirsch has also received several Individual Artists Grants. Most recently he was honored by The Rochester Institute of Technology, with the Board of Trustee’s Outstanding Scholarship Award. Recently Hirsch collaborated with Dr. Scott Meyer on his biography, the book is entitled With Fire: Richard Hirsch and is published by The Cary Graphic Arts Press at RIT, ISBN-13: 978-1-933360-97-3. Amid the ever-shifting sands of change and new trends that is prevalent in contemporary ceramics, Richard Hirsch has maintained his steadfast personal aesthetic and continues to make a significant contribution to his field.
