Resident Artist

David Trauba

Medium: Ceramic Artist
Residency: January 1, 2002–
January 1, 2003

David Trauba is a ceramic artist, working with wheel-thrown and slab constructions. His work is based on the vessel form, and he makes both functional and sculptural objects. “I find a simple pleasure in making functional objects because it gives me a sense of connection with the long tradition of ceramics.” His sculptural stoneware pushes the boundaries of clay, from the complexity of the thrown forms, to the residual salt-sagger firing. Trauba received a Mast of Arts degree from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, TX.
