BRIAN BREIDER CERAMICS
Hard & Soft : Center for Visual Arts Wausau May 14 - July 10, 2021
Brian Breider is a ceramic artist that lives and works in Milwaukee, WI. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from UW-Milwaukee and began exploring ceramics in 2005 while living in Phoenix AZ.
All of the work is inspired by the natural world. An exploration of patterns and textures from microscopic life or the planets themselves. Basic forms are used to explore these different textural surfaces to abstract the idea of life in its various stages.
Some pieces are built from layers of recycled clay to mimic the accumulation and the consolidation of sediments. These natural chaotic layers are used as inspiration for each piece. As in nature, the remnants of one become a part of another.
