About Cody Hoyt

Trained as a printmaker and painter, Brooklyn-based Cody Hoyt has recently shifted his focus to faceted, hand-marbled ceramics. “I’ve been bringing elements of my drawings into the 3D realm with ceramics,” Hoyt has said of the transition. “It allows me to further examine the role that process plays in my work.” Inspired by a range of multimedia references, from sculptures by Ken Price and John Mason, to Japanese Nerikomi pottery, to the Memphis Group, founded by Ettore Sottsass, Hoyt’s work blends detailed, geometric form with function.

American, b. 1980, based in Brooklyn, New York
