Like many artists, Wayne Higby is inspired by his surrounding landscape. Higby works in ceramics -- sculptural, tile, and vessel forms -- that test the boundaries of the medium as well as space and time.
Higby’s inspiration may be common, but his work is unique and celebrated worldwide by art fans, institutions, and scholars, who consider Higby “one of the most innovative second-generation artists to emerge from the post®CWorld War II American ceramic studio movement,” according to ASU Art Museum.
Ceramics Research Center and ASU Art Museum, 51 East 10th Street in Tempe, present “Infinite Place: The Ceramic Art of Wayne Higby,” which features 60 pieces of Higby’s work -- from raku-fired ceramics to large-scale wall installations that he’s created since the 1960s.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Tuesdays, 11 a.m. Starts: April 27. Continues through July 20, 2013
