Philip Kupferschmidt is a ceramic artist based out of San Bernardino county, California. He recieved an MFA in ceramics and BFA in creative photography from California State University, Fullerton.
All of his work is formed by hand on the wheel, and while following a general series of themes, no two pieces are identical - nor surface exactly alike. He is interested in exploring unique approaches decorative and functional ceramics through design, color and glaze experimentation.
The main interest I have in Kupferschmidt's work is in his glaze use, he uses Gloop, crawl and lichen glazes in his pieces to really good effect. I am now exploring recipes in books and on Glazy where I can try and create similar versions of these. To date I have only done limited experimenting with glaze and have really enjoyed this so I plan to continue to develop this side of my practice into the next module.
