Frans Wildenhain

One of the things I wanted to do while in Rochester, was to see an exhibit of ceramics by Frans Wildenhain, the internationally renowned master of pottery and ceramic sculpture. He taught in the School for American Craftsmen at R.I.T. between 1950 and 1970 - including the time I was there. I actually did some work for him, doing photographs of a 200-foot ceramic mural that he was commissioned to do for the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland. Anyhow, it was wonderful to see such a huge and varied collection of his pottery and sculptures at the exhibit. This photograph is of one of my favorite sculptures on display. And I thought it made it more interesting picture to have the photographer in the photograph.
