Howard Koerth working on his art

Rose State College Professor, Howard Koerth, is known internationally for his ceramic artwork.  Most recently, he was selected to participate in the Notre Dame Ceramic Collaborative Symposium which begins next week at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. 

Koerth will join nine other artists to work in the studio over the course of a week.  There will be some collaborative work between the artists and the public is invited to be spectators for their artistic process.  “I’m very excited,” said Koerth.  “It’s always fun to work with other artists and talk about ideas,” he added. 

Koerth’s medium of choice is earthenware but for the purpose of this collaborative symposium, he will be attempting to fuse his earthenware styles with the stoneware or porcelain that will be fired in the wood kiln. While he usually spends three weeks creating a piece, this tight timeline will challenge Koerth to create in just one week. The artists’ creations will be on display at the Snite Museum of Art following the week long symposium.  

Professor Koerth has been teaching Ceramics, Drawing I, Fundamentals of Art, and Art Appreciation for 22 years at RSC. You can stay connected with him and follow his week-long collaboration on his facebook page – Howard C. Koerth, Artist
