Visiting Artist: Peter Christian Johnson

This past week Edinboro had the pleasure of bringing Peter Christian Johnson as a visiting artist. He is an Associate Professor of Art at Eastern Oregon University. He earned his MFA from Penn State University and a BS in Environmental Science at Wheaton College. Peter has been a resident artist and Visiting Lecturer at the Alberta College of Art and Design, Australian National University, The Archie Bray Foundation, the LH Project, and the Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts. His work has been exhibited in Canada, Australia, and throughout the United States.

While here at Edinboro, Peter gave a lecture on his evolution as an artist and demonstrated his construction process. His unique construction process begins with designing each piece using a 3D modeling software on his computer. Then he takes sections from this model, prints them off, and uses them as a template to cut out parts from slabs of clay. Below are some shots from the workshop.

The Edinboro University Clay Club would like to thank Peter for flying out for the workshop and sharing his process with us. We would also like to thank Edinboro's Student Government Association for helping make this event possible.
