Project Description

Todd Redmond developed his interest in clay while studying ceramics at Illinois State University where he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in art. His current body of work uses abstracted figures to speak to trials of contemporary living:  accepting uncertainty while defying complacency. Todd tries to get through life with a sense of humor intact, and this work conveys some of that irreverence.“  Form and grace are of foremost  in my functional work. I create objects with artistic appeal that venerate the long history of ceramics while being rooted in the contemporary art world.” Todd has been a professional artist and instructor for many years, and he continues to reinvent his approach to clay by exploring the full ceramic spectrum.
