Bennett Bean: Be Careful What You Fall in Love With

Bennett Bean (1941) is an American ceramic artist. Although commonly described as a “studio potter,” some would characterize him as a sculptor and painter who works primarily in studio pottery. Bean is a quintessential polymath best known as a ceramicist for his treatment of vessels post firing. He works in a range of media including stone, precious metals, wool and silk weaving, and painting. For Bennett Bean, as a Buddhist practitioner, the distinctions between mediums are less than the interplay between them. The Easton exhibition will highlight that interplay—the cross-pollination between ceramic sculpture, painting, rugs, and furniture he has been working with in recent years.
