For more than forty years, California based artist David
Furman has created a rich body of work in clay that plays with ideas of
perception and humor. His range is broad and includes trompe l’oeil works
replicating tools, paintbrush filled coffee cans, teacups and drawing boards.
Furman’s most recent work explores composite-vegetable teapots.
David Furman is Professor Emeritus at two of the Claremont Colleges in California, where he occupied the Peter and Gloria Chair from 2004-07. He has had over 45 one-man shows of his work and has been included in exhibitions at the Whitney Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. Furman developed a fascination with ceramic art at an early age. His sculptures are often whimsical and humorous.
